    Hey all –

    Sorry for a possibly silly question, but I figured it would be better to ask than trial and error..

    My exchange server is sitting on a 80GB system (Raid 1, 2x 80GB SATA).

    My Question is Simple:
    If I Ghost the image of the drives to new 250GB drives should I expect any issues? (and what precautions would you recommend)

    My plan:
    Remove both drives and ghost each drive to the new drive
    (IE: Drive 0 to new Drive 0, Drive 1 to new Drive 1).
    Then reinsert the drives and watch it work ??

    I run a full backup everyday to TAPE and could restore from the TAPE, but I figured ghost would be faster and possibly better?

    My Server is a Windows 2003 Server, Exchange 2003. Dual Xeon 3ghz, 3 GB RAM.
