    Hi all,

    I have an Ubuntu 14.04 64bit server (LAMP + Postfix) with 4 manually created partitions (/boot, swap, /, /Home) on a 2 x 750GIG RAID1 server (mirrored, Intel Onboard Raid Controller)

    The current 2 HD's are a few years old, and I am looking to upgrade them to 2 x 1Tera. Space is not an issue, I can stick with new 2x750GIG if I have to.

    I am wondering what would be the best way to change/upgrade the safest possible way to new 1Tera HD's? This is an online production server.

    Please refer the guide, this is for debian but it will be almost similar to the ubuntu.

    I personally don't prefer to do such enhancements on a production environment. :)

    Thanks Srijan

    I really dont want to touch it, but I figure that the HD are at least 7 years old, if not more. So I want to be proactive and refresh them.
