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.
