    Raid setup is in Normal State.  Now need Windows 7 to do final steps

    rowby Level 1

      Hello

       

      Using the Areca windows based raid setup GUI I set up my four 1-TB hard drives into an "enclosure"

      Then I went into Windows 7 Computer Management > Disk Management. 
      Attached is a screen capture the current status of the raid. 

       

      I see that Disk 1 has two allocated sections.  And I have a choice of creating a new "Simple Drive" on the first 2048.00 GB unallocated section..

      If I issue the command to create a new Simple Drive on  the 2048.00 GB section will that command automatically bring both allocated sections into one Drive 1, or will Disk 1 end up having two separate sections?

      Thanks!
