That is why some of the other respondents said you must first 
create a good dump(8) of those two slices (or at least the one
with stuff in it).    You don't have to touch the two other slices.

There is nothing that will expand a live slice that I know of.
I know there is in the MS world, but it is a different situation.

Although I would advise taking a dump(8) of everything with data before
starting, since those two slices appear to be adjacent, you should be able
to do the operation without affecting the other two slices.

But, the two you work on will definitely be affected.  You will need to
dump and then reload the data..
