Q

Can I add more drives and RAID 5 to a SQL server without losing data on the mirrored drives?

We have a SQL 2000 server with two 18 GB drives mirrored for storage. We want to add two more 18 GB drives and create a RAID 5 volume. How can I do this without losing any data already on the mirrored drives?
You'll have to back up the data, create the RAID 5 volume and then move the data onto the new volume.
