It's a 1750 with a RAID card and what appears to be a single logical  
drive configured.  The (probably) good news, is that since it's a  
1750, it has a real RAID card on it, a MegaRaid, not one of those  
crap built in RAID1/0 things that's in the blades, so you should be  
able to break the RAID and reconfigure it as a volume from the BIOS,  
or, if you prefer, I can look at doing that on my next trip up.   
Depending on how long it takes me to get the UGC boxes for GHM  
kicked, I may be looking to head up next week, I could probably take  
a couple minutes to, at the very least, check and see if I can break  
the RAID and reconfigure without destroying the data.  If we've got a  
1750 in the office with a RAID card, I can play with that and remind  
myself of the process, it's a pretty standard maneuver but there are  
always variations between card types.

Last I looked at disk space issues on that box, a hefty chunk of it  
was the mailman archive.
