Replace disk 15k by 10k


Hi

I have in a modular smart array 500 g2, two arrays of disks in RAID 5. All disks are 72GB 15k, but one of this disks is damaged.
At the moment i only have one 146 GB disk. This disk is a 10k disk.
Can i replace a 72GB (15k) by a 146GB (10k)disk?

Thanks in advance

Is the 146GB an approved disk to be used in the SA500G2? If yes, you can use it. the only two problems are that it will be used as a 72GB disk and not a 146GB and since this disk is 10k, it will slow down the array that it belongs to.
