I am creating backup volume on RAID6 and I want to expand it in the future up to 12 2TB discs. Currently we have 4 discs in RAID5 and 4096 allocation unit + file compression on. Everything is working great.
Now I am creating the new volume (today just for testing) and I am wondering if I can set up same parameters when formatting it, do not want to get stuck after adding 6th disc because the allocation unit or the compression will not be supported on bigger size and I will not be able to extend the volume after adding new discs to the array.
Thx for all help in advance.
