Adding extra hard drive space to FOG

I’m wondering if anyone can help me, I’m running out of storage on my FOG server, I’m wanting to add an extra drive, is there an easy way to do this, or is it too difficult to do?

After that, run the below commands and provide us with the output (in a nice code-box please). We can get more specific with what’s next after this.
lsblk pvdisplay vgdisplay lvdisplay df -h fdisk -l
