Installing a new hard disk in a server.
We have a server and want to add the spare disk to the C drive to create more storage.
It is a HP Proliant DL380 G5.
Slot 1 and 2 each have a 72GB hard disk in a mirror raid
Slot 4 is the 72GB spare disk
Slot 5 - 8 each have a 72GB hard disk mirrored to make it 136GB.
I would like to add the spare 72GB disk in slot 4 to make more space for the 72GB mirror raid in slot 1 and 2.
Is this possible withouth breaking the raid and if not what is the best way to do this please?

how are the disks in slot 1 and 2 configured in the raid 1+0? if so you would need another disk so that you have 4 disks raid 1+0 and 136gb partition.
