smart array p400 controller array expansion

hi all,

weve just installed a new disk into our array, and have expanded the array. I can now see the extra space displaying in the logical drive within ACU. However it has a satus alert of 785, background parity initilization is currently queued or in progress on logical drive 1. Attahced is a screen shot showing this.

Within windows 2008 however it dosnt show the extra space on the c drive, i cant even see any unallocated space within storage manager. Is the above causing this, or do i need to follow some more steps?

thanks for your help

You need to extend your ntfs volume.
