Today I set up my first RAID ever. I decided to use RAID5, because I want as much space as possible, but I'm to afraid to use RAID0 because of possible data loss.
I have 4 0,5TB drives and in RAID5 I have about 1,36TB usable. That's fine by me.
Now I have a question. I'm thinking about purchasing a 2TB drive and can't figure out if it is possible to add it to this RAID (4*0,5TB + 1*2TB HDD) and how much space will I gain.
I hope someone can answer me, it would help a lot! Thank you in advance.
