Drive Raid

January 14th, 2014

Will increasing the logical drive size from adding an additional drive into an array cause me to lose my data?

I have a IBM server with a 3 drive raid 5 array (Serveraid 7k) that has one logical drive and two partitions (boot and data). I added an additional physical drive in the array, how to I expand my data partition live without losing data? Will running LDM to expand the logical drive repartition/format it?

After adding an additional drive into RAID 5 array, the space will show as unallocated and locate at the end of logical drive. To expand data partition, it depends on what's your OS. If you are using Windows 7, Vista or 2008, the built-in Disk Management allows you to extend volume. Otherwise, you need some partition tool, such as Aomei Partition Assistant: http://www.disk-partition.com
