    Move a Recovery Volume to Larger Hard Drive???

    Baconator

      I have a Dell Latitude E6530 running Intel Rapid Storage Technology (Intel RST).

       

      I have a 750GB Master Drive and a 2TB Recovery Drive.  1.25TB on the Recovery Drive is not available/usable.  I chose Recovery (instead of RAID 1), but not for any particular reason other than ignorance.

       

      I am considering purchasing a 2nd 2TB Drive to replace the Master Drive.

       

      I just read the following article:

      Move a RAID 1 Volume to Larger Hard Drive

      Based on the information in this article, can this procedure also be done with a Recovery Volume?

      Is there a size limitation with a Recovery Volume (I have seen others mention 1.3TB limit)?

      If there is a size limitation, can I convert this to a RAID 1 Volume?

      If I convert to a RAID 1 Volume, what are the pros/cons of RAID 1 vs. Recovery Volume?

       

      Thanks,
