Adding a new Disk to Existing Array in Server 2003
I have a RAID 5 array which is running low on space. I have 3 partitions (E,F and G) I need to add to the F partition. If I delete the F Partition and make it un-allocated space and then add a new hard drive to the array can I then increase the size of the partition to include the new disk and then restore data from backup? Or will the un-allocated space from the F partition stay in the middle of E and G and the new disk appear as un-allocated space at the end thus not allowing me to join both to make 1 new larger partition?
Hope that makes sense.
