You will need to use the Array Configuration Utility ro..

1. Expand the Array (Sounds like you may have done this already)

2. Extend the logical drive(s) in question.

3. Use the OS utility to extend partitions.


What OS are you running?

Yes you are wrong.

Spare management is managing spare drives (Hot spare).
