DELL Openmage Increase Raid5 size

I have a DELL server with Perc 6/i Raid Controller.  Originally it had 4x 750Gb drives. I have replaced each drive with a 1Tb drive rebuilding each time to keep the data intact.

Is there a way to use the spare 232Gb on each drive? Again, keeping the data intact.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The ONLY thing you can do with that new space is create a new VD/array with it.  You cannot join that space with the original array.  This will appear to the OS as a separate "disk".
