When adding a new storage drive in the DCD or when increasing the size of the same storage drive, you can add a new partition or increase the size of the same drive within the operating system as well.

When using Windows server, here are the steps you need to follow in order to initialize and partition the newly added storage space.:

  - Win Server 2008 R2:  Server Manager - Storage - Disk Management
  - Win Server 2012 R2: Server Manager - File and Storage Services - Disks

Now you can configure and partition the new space however you like.
