  • You should be able to remove the drive, put in the new one, and use the recovery disc (not the home computer restore CD) to reinitialize the disk. The best time to do it would obviously be right after you get your server, because you won't have put any data on it at that point...

  • Thanks Ken,
    I assume that means the H340 CAN accept 1.5 and 2 tb drives?
    Is that correct?
    Thanks.
