Add hard drives


Recommended Posts



On my Microserver G8, I installed W2012 R2 Essentials using the Intelligent Provisioning method on a hard drive (slot1) and created an array for that disk.


Then, I placed 3 more hard drives with data (videos, photos, music, etc.) and I can't seem to find a way to get access to that data from the hard drives.


On the Disk Management console, none of the 3 hard drives are recognized. On the HP Smart Storage utility, the 3 hard drives are identified as unassigned drives and the only option is to create an array for these drives. But, by doing that I will lose all of my data, right?


So, what should I do to in order to use my 3 drives without losing any data or reformatting these drives?
