I currently have 3 x 3TB RED Drives using slot 2,3 & 4 as RAID 5
I want to add another 3TB drive to Slot 1.
I turned off the drive and inserted new HD into Slot 1 then rebooted.
Disk Status shows 4 drives but the total total/usable space with new drive is NOT registering.
The EX4 does not read the new 3TB in slot 1.
Is it possible to add the new drive as part of the previous RAID 5 array? ie more space?
From reading the forum i hear that i have to format the drive.
If i go to utilities and format disk the drop down shows option to format VOLUME_1 … i
i dont know if this means VOLUME_1 as in the First Drive?
or the Entire array of disks…
I dont want to lose information on the other drives…just want to add the addiional 3 tb to existing…
is this possible?
