            Hello ahmed.shiwaish2009@gmail.com,

            Thank you for contacting the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology for enterprise support

            As we understand you rebuild a RAID 1 array using a 1TB SSD, then you were trying to resize the RAID array, but on disk management is not showing that there is unallocated space available but on the Intel® RSTe software gui you have the option to increase or create another volume.

            After checking the pictures you provided us we noticed that you are currently using 476.936MB of the 3.6TB available. You can increase or create a new volume depending on what are you intending to use the available space.

            As you are trying to partition the raid array,

            1. you should be able to create another volume using the available space.
            2. During the volume creation  you can select the amount of size you want to assign to the volume 
            3. After the volume has been created you should received a message that the volume was created successfully and that you will need to partition your new volume using Windows Disk management before you can add any data.
            Please try the following steps and let us know the outcome 

            Best Regards

              No I don’t want to create a new volume , I want to increase the array voulme. In the RSTe software on the left said there is increase volume.. should I press on that or what should I do .. also it’s not SSD it’s SATA disk 2 disks 2TB RAID 1

               

              thanks

                  Hello ahmed.shiwaish2009@gmail.com,

                  Thank your for the clarification on the steps that you are trying to perform

                  Yes, that is the correct way if you want to increase the size of your raid volume. however please allow me to check on the warning message that you are getting to make sure this process will not erase the data on your raid 1 array.

                  I will get back to you ASAP once i have determined that the process will not erase the data on your raid

                  Best Regards

                    Yes , I relad it carefully it’s look like nothing because the space is already empty so it’s not telling I will lose my data on the hard drive and I’m not eable to get excess to them. Also I think this warning it’s not belong to RAID 1 configuration...!

                     

                    but I will wait for your answer I’m not taking any action yet.  Thanks

                      Hello ahmed.shiwaish2009@gmail.com,

                      We hope you are doing well

                      We have investigated on the message that you are getting when you attempted to increase the size of the volume. Our recommendation is to continue with the process since Intel® RSTe will only wipe the information that is being store on HDD but that is that not part of the raid 1 volume data, However, please make sure to have a back up of your information in case of an unexpected error.

                      Best Regards
