replacing 18g hard drives with 72g drives in a windows 2000 server

By greenc ·
I have a windows 2000 server with a raid setup. i am replacing the 5 18 gig drives with 5 72 gig drives. i have a unitrends disk backup server that will reinstall the server in no time but how do i increase the volume sizes. i have heard that i can use partition magic once the server has been reinstalled and i have also heard that you cannot use partition magic on a windows 2000 server.

Don't worry, this problem can be solved easily

yes, partiton magic cannot help you solve the problem.
In fact, you need not to reinstall the server. if you want to transfer to the larger disk, just copy the original raid virtual disk, after copy, you can use the new disk immediately. But if you have reinstalled and want to expand the partition, see http://www.partition-tool.com/resource/partition-raid-windows-server.htm

This SW also can help you copy raid disk to transfer os and data, see http://www.partition-tool.com/easeus-partition-manager/disk-copy.htm
Hope it help.
