Specs: Windows 7
Hello all, I have a file server running openfiler raid 1, amd athlon x2 64 3800 with 1 gig of memory, it has 2 1TB sata drives, giving me 1 gig of storage space, i have a 2TB external HD backup thats a backup to the server, so i want to add another 1 TB drive so that i can have 2 TB of storage on the server, is adding an additional 1 TB drive possible?, its about half full, or should i just start over with the 3 1TB drives and then just restore the backup to the server? i want to just add one more 1TB drive.

A RAID 1 array consists of exactly two drives. You can add a 1 TB drive but it will be an independent drive and cannot be a part of an existing RAID 1 array.
