Hello
I hace a stand alone computer which has a RAID controller by adaptec. It is configured as a RAID 5 including 3 SCSI drives. I want to add more drives to that RAID but cannot. I am using the program storage manager from adaptec however I am not successful. Any clear directions and advice will be greatly appreciated.
thanks

my knowledge of raid is limited. If you have thought of this forgive me. I dont think you can add more drives to a raid array. At least on my simple SATA array you cant. You will need to delete your current array and the make a new on with all the drives. Then format it etc. Also can your controller handle an array with more than 3 drives. If you have SCSI it probably can
