I need to extend a simple dynamic volume to a newly installed third hard drive. I have Dell Power edge 1300, Dell's PERC2/3 Array Manager software, not Windows Disk Manager. Everything I have read leads me to believe that this can be done quite simply. My question is, what happens to my data on the current volume? Is it lost during the extension process?
If you are just adding more space to an existing volume, then your existing data should be unharmed. However, always back up your data before making any adjustments to your storage sub-system.
