Creates a logical drive from the free space on the selected array.

On a HP ML350 G3.. with a E200i RAID controller.. I have added another drive to a RAID 5 Array and expanded the array.
Because the controller has no battery I cannot extend the logical drive.. the only option, in the Array Configuration Utility,  states 'Creates a logical drive from the free space on the selected array'.

Will this leave the existing logical drives intact.? and only create a new logical drive that I can format NTFS.?

I'm pretty sure it will.. but am being a bit paranoid and would like a 2nd opinion.

many thanks in advance

Yes, it will use only free space and not touch previously allocated space.  Create away!

You shouldn't have been able to expand the array without battery, must be a firmware bug that allowed it.
