Ok, some time ago, I bought a server from a corporate reseller. It came with 3 SCSI drives installed. I broke out that copy of Server 2k that's been collecting dust on my bookshelf, got it loaded and away I went.

I recently got a good deal on replacement drives for the box... This will almost triple my capacity. The drives are set up in RAID 5. I have yet to run across a solution that will allow me to clone the current array to the new array.
I currently have 6 drives installed (max capacity), 3 per array in RAID 5. As soon as I can get the system migrated to the new array, I plan to remove the old disks and replace them with 3 more of the new drives.

can anyone suggest a software solution that will let me clone the arrays?
If you truly live by the sword, it only stands to reason that someone has to die by it.

I've read that Acronis True Image Server will work for this application.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
