Pro ML370 Raid 0 and Raid 5

I have a server with Raid 5 with 4 drives from 0 to 3, in array A. Been using it for the past 3 years. Apparently need more space - I only have 2gb left.

Bought new 2 HD 72gb a piece and plugged it in 4 and 5. Ran the Smart Array Utility and created a new array B, plan to use it with no fault tolerance.

I ran the expansion this morning since 10:00am and 5 hours later it is still running with 24% sometimes it goes down back to 15% and it will come back up. Is this norm?
