Hi to community!
Quick question about RAID size... We had 2 disks of 1 TB in RAID 1. Then we needed extra storage, and replaced one disk with 2 TB disk, did rebuild, and then replaced second disk with 2 TB disk and did rebuild.
Now we have 2 disks of 2 TB in RAID 1 but RAID size is still 1 TB, not 2 TB and RAID manager (Ctrl - I) doesn't have option to inspect or increase RAID size.
How can we change that?

welcome to the forum!
have you checked disk management (start > run > diskmgmt.msc) to see if the logical drive has any spare area available? if you do see spare area then you can increase the partition size from within diskmgmt.

if you don't see any spare area then the controller won't relinquish it. your only option at this point is to back up your data and build a new array from scratch.
