Adding drives to existing dynamic group

By JimHjr73 ·
Hi guys/gals.

I have an HP z400 machine currently used as a file/media server. I have a collection of hard drives installed totaling 6TB in a dynamic spanned group so the computers sharing data see it as a single drive. The drives are populated with approx 4TB of existing data.

I need to add an additional 4TB (2x2TB drives) to the system for growing storage needs. My question is, can I add the 2 new drives to the existing dynamic group without losing existing data?

I know it will be suggested to back the existing data up prior to adding the 2 new drives but I do not have that capability so I am looking for less intrusive process to add additional storage to the existing span w/o having to move/lose data.
