Hi,

Ive just increased my RAID 5 setup (adaptec 4805) from 1.8tb to 3.6tb

Everything looks good from the adaptec storage manager but when I go to disk management Im unable to allocate the extra disk space :(

Is there a work around for this?

Win 7 64bit
adaptec 4805sas
5x 1TB drives (RAID 5)

Dont know if this is why (http://support.asus.com/faq/asus-faq.aspx?type=6&no=B2EED94B-A58D-05F5-0DAF-864FC6F34066&model=P5Q%20SE/R&SLanguage=en-us). Or if its what you've done. It may not be your mobo, but it probably applies to any 2 TB hdd
