Customer Question
I have an Asus Zenbook...
I have an Asus Zenbook UX301LA (blue) with two 128GB SSDs with RAID 0. The Windows C: drive is full and I need more room. I bought two 250GB SSDs to upgrade. What is the safest method for upgrading? How can I clone my two 128GB over to the two 250GB SSDs without having to reinstall my OS, apps, and data?

Good question James, and one that makes me think. I need to ask one major question, is this in software of hardware raid? In either case it will be difficult, short of using some enterprise tools, though i'm not sure those would even support Raid 0 since there is zero redundancy on two drives. You can move your raid 0 over to one larger drive with out a problem - Then from this point on it will depend on if you are using software or hardware raid, if you are using software raid, as far as I know you will be stuck, If you have hardware Raid, you should be able to get it going again via the bios and some other tricks, but i'd like to know which you are using. It REALLY is better to do a fresh install when ever you add a new drive, ESPECIALLY with raid as it is not very hard to back up your data and start out fresh with out risking your current data, because that is exactly what you will be doing......be low are some disk cloners, make a note if you use them to get the Master boot record or it will fail.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
