RAID setup for fileserver
I've never used a RAID system before and I would like to build a fileserver with a (software) RAID 5 setup.
Currently I have a 200GB disk with all the data I would like on the server.
I understand I need 3 disk's for RAID 5 ?
Should I first create a raid device (with 3 new disks) and then transfer all my data from the original disk ?
And afterwards add the original disk to the raid ( wich would increase the total volume ? )
Or can this be done with buying just 2 new disks ?
