It is a Dell PERC 4/DI controller. I have added it to the RAID 5 with a utility from Dell.

This system contains 3 drives that are 36gb a piece. I have partitioned  the  drives and the Cdrive  contains only the OS and then I created another volume that contains the users and share folders. I have now bought a 72gb drive and have used a utility provided by Dell to add to the RAID 5. When I go into computer management and then disk management I can see the new drive I added as unallocated. I am trying extend the volume that houses my users and share folders to this HDD because I am running out of space. I am trying to find the best way to accomplish this task.
