hi

basically you take one 40 GB out insert the 160 GB HDD wait for rebuild process, after completed go for the second HDD do same procedure when both HDDS have been replaced and rebuild s done go to ACU and extend the new space more information here

Thank you karlo.

Please forgive my inexperience but if you have the time, can you explain what is "ACU" and how to extend the storage space?

ACU is array configuration utility

the tool you must use since after you replace both HDDs you have to open that and select the RAID and right hand will show you the option to extend the RAID to a new size

check this manual

Configuring Arrays on HP Smart Array Controllers Reference Guide
