On a HP Proliant Server I added a 36GB drive to the Raid 5 array.  I did this using the HP Array Configuration Utility.  When the process had finished (after many days) I went to the disk management in Windows 2003 Server and saw that there was 36 GB of unallocated space.  I then installed diskpart for Windows 2003 Server and ran it to extend the volume.  I only have one volume (c:).  The diskpart process completed sucessfully.

However, I go into disk management now and the lower section shows the full volume size of 140GB, but the upper section (and in My Computer) shows 104GB.

I have tried rescanning the controller, updating drivers, etc.  I need to correct this problem.
