I have a client running SBS. They have a RAID 1 volume for their system and a RAID 5 volume for their data. I recently added a 300GB drive to the RAID 5 volume and reconfigured the logical to recognize it. Computer Management now shows 300GB of unallocated space.
What I'd like to do is extend the volume to pick up the 300GB into the current data volume. I see in computer management that I have the extend volume option, but when I read the help notes, it says this cannot be used on a RAID-5 volume.
I'm assuming this will not work and that I'll have to recreate the volume, though I'd much rather extend the volume.
Any experiences to share for this one?
