Specs: Windows Server 2008
I have 2 hard drives configured as raid 1 running my os (windows server 2008) I need to replace these drives with larger drives. Does any one have any insight on how to do this without very little or no downtime.

Pull the shadow drive and put it into another pc along with the larger drive
Clone the smaller disk to the larger one using the entire space in the larger drive.
Take the server down and pull the primary mirror drive and replace it with this larger clone.
Boot up. Everything should be fine.
Insert the 2nd larger disk and mirror it.
