If one drive goes bad after the warranty, does a similarly sized drive need to take its place or can you put in a larger one (assuming it is in RAID mode, not JBOD)?
Asked by: Matthew
If you want to continue to use it in RAID, they will need to be identical. If you intend to use it in JBOD, it could be larger.
