Adding Spare Disk to Disk array

Hi.

I'm running out of disk space on Level 5 Disk array. In the meantime, i'm planning to add an available spare disk to the array, but array configurator (2.21b) only allows to create another logical disk wit the available HD space, not to expand the logical disk as I desire.

Any ideas?

Re: Adding Spare Disk to Disk array

That's the way the Smart-2 will do it. It will be covered under the RAID 5 array, but the controller can not expand the OS level partition, so it creates a new logical drive that you have to merge with the partition with a "Volume Set". This is done in Disk Administrator in NT.
