I have a Raid 5 config on a backup server and I would like to know if there is a way to add another HD to the server. I know I cant add it to the raid array without reconfiguring the array and basically having to rebuild the server. I really just want to add the drive as a slave so that I can see it and use it just for a backup. Is this possible?
