RAID 10 volumes cannot be expanded with additional drives.  That feature is only supported on RAID 0, 5 & 6

On expanned RAID volumes (10,50,60), it is not possible to expand the logical volumes to the free space on the drives or by adding mode drives.  This is only possible with 'simple' RAID volumes: 0,1,5,6

 

If there is additional space on the driver on the RAID 10 disk group, it is possible to create another logical volume with that free capacity (same RAID level and same capacity consumed from all drives on the group).
