I currently have a RAID5 array setup in Win Server 2008 with 3 x 1TB drives. I need to add another 1TB drive to the array but i cant find an option in Win Server 2008 to do this. I did some research on this and came up blank. Is there a third party software that can accomplish this? or where can i find the option in Win Server 2008 would be great!

Thanks for any helps.

I have a few...questions. R5 needs 4 drives to have parity and you're running 3, so I'm not sure that you're really running a true R5 array with software. It's possible with 2 or 3 drives, but never something I'd feel comfortable running for the full effect. Is hardware RAID an option? I feel you'd be better off in 2008 anyway.
