Most likely, you'll just see a drive with un-allocated space until you do something with it ... You can either add drives to the RAID array using OMsA if installed, or via the BIOS if not. I have the same thing; bought the unit with two drives, installed two more drives about five years later, and then configured those drives using Windows storage Spaces.
