I have some nice screenshots regarding how to expand and extend the logical drive. It was tested on a Microsoft environment. Event though using the smart start CD this process is the same. No data will be lost, even though a backup is recommended.

Also check this user Guide on page 35 for more information on extending a logical drive:
