    Increasing Hard-drive and Hard-drive size to current RAID 5 configuration


      Hello Intel Support,


      I have a Raid 5 with 4 * 250 Gb HDD on windows 10 Enterprise computer. I am using  "Intel(R) Desktop/Workstation/Server Express Chipset SATA RAID Controller (  Version :       
      Processor: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU

      Installed Ram: 24 GB


      I want to add one HDD to the current RAID configuration (so total 5 HDDs in Raid configuration) and also would like to increase size of individual Hard-drives in current configuration.  Whats the maximum size of individual HDDs I can increase in Intel Raid 5 configuration and with current processor ?
      Is it possible using the same controller and is the processor be able to handle bigger HDDs?


      I need your valuable opinions, your information and your recommendations.


      If it is possible, could you share an article or instruction on how to do it.
