I have a raid 1 hard drive array and it is nearing capacity. I would like to add two more for data, pictures, music, and home videos. I have to identical 500g Western digital HD that I would like to add. Where do I start? I have a ASUS P5LD2 motherboard, windows XP, SP3, and a Pentium 2.80 Ghz Intel. I have a lot of programs loaded that i use for work and I really can't start from scratch. Is what i am trying to do possible? thanks

Hey mate,

Sounds like you just need to add in the two new drives and create a second array.

Cheers

Provided you have enough connectors on your motherboard just connect the drives and create a new array. The old array will stay so you wont lose anything. Then once you have it up and running you can remap your videos etc to the other array.
