Extending the boot (system) volume

Hello,
I'm trying to extend my C drive (Raid 1+0) which is running out of disk space. (ProLiant DL380 G3 with Smart Array 5i)

I bought 2 larger drives, replaced them with the mirrored drives one by one waiting it to rebuild first. And then I extended the partition using HP Array Configuration Utility. That did not extended my C partition. Now I have 2 partitions, second one is unallocated.

Is there way to extend the drive to include that unallocated partition? I've search the forum and found one answer which looked little dangerous.

Anyone tried this, or have a better and safer way to extend this C drive?

Thanks in advance...
