As per MS in https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc770938(v=ws.11).aspx

Mirrored, RAID-5 and striped volumes cannot be extended.

The third party tool MAY be able to do it indeed (please check the documentation first though). Still, there's a warning under it, telling you to backup all your data (so you should).
Usually a good reason a third party tool might work, is because it's booted outside Windows (so Windows is not currently running), either because you use a cd/usb to boot, or the program running in Windows will reboot itself into this environment.
