Hi Robert. I'm Don..Dan posed the question for me. We're using windows 2000 server edition with service pack 4. A Belarc report states we have 4 controllers: Standard floppy, Primary IDE channel, secondary IDE channel and standard dual channel PCI IDE. Bus adapters include: Adaptec AHA-2930CU PCI SCSI Controller, AIC-7892 Ultra 160/m PCI SCSI Card, AIC 7896/AIC-7897 PCI Ultra2 SCSI Controller, Symbios Ultra3 PCI SCSI Adapter; 53C1010-33 Device (2x). BIOS is American Megatrends 070001.
We have a spanned volume on 5 drives including 2 IBM 36.70g SCSI's and 2 Seagate 73.40g and 1 Seagate 36.41g SCSI's. We are running out of space. I wanted to add a large capacity drive to the sixth bay and copy the information from the spanned volume and then change out to a RAID array with larger drives. The 5 drives are all U160 , 10K rpm 80 pin low voltage. I originally wanted to throw in a 300-400g U320 10K and I discussed this with the firm who usually helps us with these problems, but they say they don't believe it will work. I'm looking for a way out of this spanned volume problem. Does the above information help?
