Extending a RAID5 Volume with new drives

Hi,

I have a Thunderbay 8 filled with 6TB drives. It's working fine with RAID5.

Now, I also have a Thunderbay 4 with empty 6TB drives. I'm wondering if there's a way to add those 4x6tb drives to the 8x6tb RAID5 volume. So that I can have a 12x6tb RAID5 volume. And most importantly, would that be possible to do that without formatting all the drives? Basically, I want to extend my Thunderbay8 without having to backup all the data.

Thanks in advance for advice.

Sorry, we cannot add disks to an existing volume like that. Maybe someday
