added more storage to my server

Hi. I have just added more storage to my server

Because they were running out of storage on their existing drive.

 I've added 3x1tb SATA drives in RAID 5.

I was hoping to hav the 4th drive as a spare but was unable to do so in the raid config utility.

 If there is a way to do this withing the OS let me know.

What I want is to move shares and data over to the new drive with ZERO impact on the end user.

 I dont want them to even notice it has happened.

This is very very important. Obviously all the security settings need to be brought over also.  Thanks
ideas?

Without knowing make/model of RAID controller and server it's pretty hard to help. You certainly can't use a hot spare with Windows.
