Having never used this card properly yet I have a question.

I have have an array of 3 disks and i want to add 2 more the procedure is...

Use the BIOS, boot cd or ARC to tell the card to expand the array.
Use gparted or the like to expand the ext3 partition


The question i have is do the new drive i am adding to the array need to be blank or will i end up with 2-3 partitions on one array. After which i could merge the two partitions into one partition.

I am just trying to understand the ins and outs as moving TB's of data about is slow and backing up not really an option.

Cheers
