Re: Is it possible to enhance an exiting RAID5 array

Once you physically add the drives launch the ACU and among the other wizards you should see the option to expand the array. Once you do this you should have the option to extend the logical drive. After making this change and saving it you will see free space within the OS.
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..
