    Changing Volume Type on RAID

      Intel Rapid Storage Technology 9.6.0.1014

      Windows 7

      Intel X58 Express

      ICH10 Family

       

      Help documents states I should be able to change a volume type from 2-disk RAID 0 to a 3 disk RAID 5

       

      Currently have a 2 disk Raid 0 with ST31000528AS (seagate 1TB Barracuda 7200.12)

      Have a 3rd that was a single D drive with nothing on it.

      It was used up rebuilding one of the raid disk.

       

      so 2 disk Raid 0

      2 more free disk (empty)

      When there was 3 drives icons was Status, Manage, Preferences, Help

      with nothing that was changable other than 3r drive could be made a spare.

      Now have 4 drives icons are Status, Create, Manage, Preferences, Help

      Under Create it has Raid 1, Raid 0, Raid 5(greyed out), Raid 10(greyed out)

       

      Objective is to Migrate to a 3 disk RAID 5 or a 4 DISK RAID 10.

      Manual says to "Chainging Volume Type"

      1. under status or manage click the volume to modify.

      2. Click 'change type'  == I am unable to find a "change type"

       

      Under Manage Array the only choice is to enable or disable data cache

      Under Manage Volume the only choices is to rename, enable or disable data cache, Verify
