I have been studing this subjet for a couple of weeks, and change my storage scheme to LVM (for example) seems to be the better choice. Someone have ever done that? It is necesary to reinstall all the backuppc server in the new storage scheme?

Going from non-LVM to LVM would be good.  With new disks create a LVM partion and dd your data to it.  Then you can add the old disk to that LVM and expand it.  There is a flag with LVM resize that will also resize the filesystem.
