I own a Mac Pro with an Apple RAID card. I set it up with three 1.5TB drives. I recently replaced one drive with a 3TB drive and now want the volume to expand to meet the new capacity. The Apple manual tells me to type in to terminal

$ sudo raidutil modify volume --expand -n volume -s size. 

I tried several times to do this with different combinations but it wont work. Below is the last time I tried. Any help would be appreciated.

NYCretoucher-Remote:~ nisian$ sudo raidutil modify volume --expand -n volume R1V1 -s size 700
