The primary drive that I have Windows 10 installed on is a 2TB hard drive. I have a HP Z800. It is populated with five 4TB hard drives. I have run out of space and will need to replace all the hard drives with ones of larger capacity.

I have the TIB of this partition. I do I run the restore of this TIB so that I have access to, and can view, the whole 5TB hard drive? It's the Windows 2TB limitation that I need to work with so that I have a 5TB hard drive with Windows 10 running on it.

If this note makes sense please let me know how to do this.

The 2TB only applies if the disk use MBR rather than GPT. To boot from a GPT drive the PC must be set up to use UEFI rather than Legacy/BIOS. You select Windows Boot Manager as the boot device rather than a particular disk to boot from.
