I have a RAID 5 array on my main file server. It was 3 72.6gb 15k drives...I added another 72.6gb 15k drive in an effort to increase my capacity by another 72gb...however, when I put it in & use HP's configuration, I now have the same amount of space on the C: drive & in looking at the drive management, it shows that it is part of the RAID & an upartioned space on Disk 0.
How do I get the 67.4gb of unallocated space to be added to my 135.66gb of space (of which only 11gb is free) without deleting ANY data off the 135.66gb?
Please help me, I know this is something simple & I am hoping that it is a process that doesn't take too long since downtime is bad. (I could have sworn that I could just put the drive in, add it to the array & automatically have the data start striping accross it...too optimistic I guess!)
Thanks ahead of time.
