Need to Stop Capacity Expansion

Hi. (this is a repost as the 1st does not appeared..) I just added 2 36gb disks to an existing 4 36 Gb raid 5 and the Capacity Expansion has started in 43% and, in 16 hours, increased only 8%. It wont finish until users arrive.

Is there any way to stop it by removing the new disks?

thanks.

Re: Need to Stop Capacity Expansion

No, please don't do that! As this is a RAID-5, you will kill the logical disk if you pull 2 disks. As far as I can tell, once the process has started, there is no way to revert back to a 4 disk configuration except by a complete new setup from scratch.
