  • Add and remove disks:Do not remove or resize Hard Disk 1 as it is the boot disk and resizing is not supported. Removing this disk will cause the system to become non-bootable and resizing it will not provide extra storage for the system.When adding new disks, ensure they are the same size as the existing disks. For example, if the existing disks are 100 GB, than all new disks must be 100 GB.When removing disks, ensure at least one disk remains. Removing all disks results in all losing all configuration.
