Many thanks Chris for your reply So as instructed I updated the firmware and drivers to the current release and run a consistency check on the new 125gb virtual drive no problem found I have installed Openmanage software all good so far the problem i have is still the same , there is no option to expand the size of the disk 2 125gb (2tb)drive, do i need to take the hard drives offline to do this , looked in the help section but was limited  and the new drive that i installed disk 3 the only option was to make it a raid 1 virtual drive also unable to find how to integrate it into the raid 5 set again do i need to take all drives offline  the shot at the bottom is my concern that i do not lose the OS partition the shot below showing options many thanks Keiran

Hi All, I Currently have a Problem with a PowerEdge R410 Server which is used to store CCTV footage for a Lenel Video System The problem started when we Noticed the 3rd drive or disk 2 was flashing fault, so new ordered 2 new drives and replace the faulty drive which rebuilt itself on the raid same as before which was fine but noticed as before that the drive 2 virtual disk is only 125gb is this correct or is the failure of the drive shrunk the raid if so how can i expand the raid back to full size, hitting F2 doesn't give me the option of expanding the raid as its greyed out also I have added a 4th drive which i would also like to add to the raid as well does this mean i have to delete the group and make a new one or is there a better option my greatest concern is not to loose the boot partition as time consuming to get all lenel cctv software back on etc so my question is  1. how (if possible) do I restore the VD 2 to full 1800.00 GB 2. how do I add an Additional 1800gb Drive to the raid Many thanks in Advance
