Anything is possible, just make sure you have a good back up in case you messed up, it's better to test first on a virtual machine, at least that's what I do but if you're adventurous enough go ahead... 2. I suppose you mean you want two directories in HA, yes this is possible..depends on your style. 3. It's recommended that you have identical hard drive/partition size. HTH
