Server 2008r2 : best practice to extend an already extended drive partition

I have the following setup

Screen Dump Disk Management

I want to extend E and add the Disk 3 unallocated space.

The question is: Do I run the expansion wizard from Disk 1 or Disk 2?

Logically I think it should be from Disk 1 which was the original partition. Disk 2 is the original expansion of disk 1.

Any advise would be appreciated.

In Disk Management, right-click the simple or spanned volume you want to extend. So it should be Disk 1 .
As originally Disk 1 is representing your volume.

As far as you already have a dynamic volumen, you can right click anywhere in the purple área (It corresponds to the volumes inside Disk1 and Disk2). At the end the result is going to be the same
