Reimaging after replacing hard drives



I have been tasked to replace one of our users old 250 GB hard drives with
750 GB hard drives. We use a built in raid controller in our dell boxes. I
was thinking a good solution would be to image his hard drive, break the raid
1 array, reimage the first hard drive, and then add the second and rebuild
the array. My question is how will I handle the partion sizes and overall
size increase of the hard drive. Will the extra space be just extra space
that Ican format later, has anyone done this before? Thanks




An imaging app such as Acronis has the ability to 'expand' the image to the
destination drive size.
