ML 370 Add unused space to Raid 5 Array

I have just added a 6th disk to my single array raid 5. The last drive shows up as unused space 104761 mb in the ACU. I wish to make use of this space as my Data drive ( E ) is running out of space on Win2003.

When I try to expand the logical drive it only lets me expand it from 260000 to a max of 261116 so obviously no use. Once expaneded I had intended to use Acronis Disk Director to resize the drives as I have previously done.

Any ideas why I cant extend this logical drive ? I have successfully done this on another ML370.
