Can striped volumes in Windows Server 2008 R2 be extended?
I have searched here on ServerFault and also on Google for an answer to this, and I can't seem to find an answer. Even the commercial tools I have looked at cannot do it.

A spanned volume is a dynamic volume that consists of disk space on more than one physical disk. If a simple volume is not a system volume or boot volume, you can extend across additional disks. If you extend a simple volume across multiple disks, it becomes a spanned volume.
You can extend a volume only if it does not have a file system or if it is formatted using the NTFS file system. You cannot extend volumes formatted using FAT or FAT32.
