  • extending raid with new disk

    Ive recently purchased new disks to add to 2 new servers (both DC's).

    Both servers are running raid 5 and I'd like to extend the raid array to add the new disks to enable more storage space under one drive letter. The raid soft ware has reconsised the new disks and added them to the array but in windows disk management there is a new drive rather than the origional being added to the new.

    do I turn the disks into dynamic? will I loose the data on it? and if I do make them dynamic, can you then add them together? to make one logical disk?

    I am running 2003 and IBM server raid.
