Dave from The Home Server Show posted a great walk-through of upgrading the storage capacity of his very full HP MediaSmart server.

My parting thought is that you should think about swapping in larger drives before your other drives get full in order to make the swap as easy as possible.  If you don’t, you might be looking at some cleanup or possibly adding some temporary USB drives to help facilitate the swap.  I know what you’re thinking.  Use the Disk Balancer utility to balance up those drives.  Don’t think I haven’t thought about it but I’m willing to let Windows Home Server perform as designed for the time being.

If you have encountered such a situation I am interested to hear what your methods were.

Lastly, this article was partly made possible by the fantastic Add-In, Windows Home Server Disk Management, by Sam Wood.  Thanks for a great Add-In Sam.

Glad to hear we could help, Dave, and thanks for the plug!
