I have a ML370 G3 server, it had 6 36 GB hard drives in a raid 5, I was running out of space and I changed one by one the 6 drives with 6 72GB hardrives, they are controlled by a 641 HP array controller, with no problem and they rebuilt the whole array. After that  I used the HP array utility configuration to expand the array.  THe array utility sees the six drives as only 1 logical drive of 350 GB but windows only sees the original 170 GB and an unallocated sapce of 170GB. THE OS system and the data are in this array. How can I make that WIndows sees the whole capacity?
