Hello Involute, thanks for joining the Intel Community.
It is very important to know the following information in order to find out the reason why the system is not copying the data into the new hard drive.
Please reply back with the following information:
- Where do you have the operating system install?
- May I have the model number of the motherboard you are using?
- Please let me know the size of the new hard drivers?
- I would recommend you installing the Rapid Storage technology version 11.7. This is the new version of the Matrix Storage https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/22194/Intel-Rapid-Storage-Technology-Intel-RST-RAID-Driver
Thanks for your reply. Answers below.

Since I originally posted, I've made some progress. I was able to rebuild the array with one of the original drives (let's call it drive X) and the balky new drive (let's call it Y) after deleting the partition on Y. Then I replaced the X with the other new drive that hadn't caused a problem (Z). Now, however, Matrix Manager shows two broken arrays:
The only actions it's offering on either array is modify or delete the associated volume. Array_000 has the Y disk. Array_001 has the Z disk. Not sure how to proceed. Delete the volume on Array_001 and hope it releases Z to the Non-RAID pool so I can add it to Array_000?

For the benefit of anyone having the same problem, I DID delete the Data (mirror):1 volume which released the drive to the Non-RAID Hard Drives. Then I selected the released drive as the one to rebuild the RAID to which proceeded without a hitch. Next, I expanded the Data (mirror) volume to 100% of available space. Finally, I expanded the volume again in the Windows Disk Management console, which doesn't happen automatically when expanding it within Matrix Manager. Now everything's working fine.
