Raid 1 with different capacity question on blades

Mohammed had a disk question about Raid 1 version:

 

******************

 

I need to know if there is a way to convert a raid 0 disk to a raid 1 using another disk with higher capacity....

Or creating a raid 1 with 2 disks of the same capacity, and then take of one disk and insert another higher capacity disk.. Will that work?

 

**************

 

Input from Hiro:

 

****************

 

Yes, it works.

You can only use same capacity of smaller HDD for bigger HDD.

For example, if you configure RAID1 using a 72GB HDD and a 146GB HDD, you can only use 72GB of the 146GB HDD.

 

Hope this helps.

Any other input or comments?
