Logical drive extension

Hi,
Is it possible to extend logical drives consisting of disks with a certain disk size with disks with another size? For example, is it possible to extend an existing logical drive (RAID 5) consisting of 4 disks of 9.1 GB with two disks of 2.1 GB?
Kind regards,
Werner

Re: Logical drive extension

Hi,
No, it is not possible. If you want extend logical drive consisting of disks of 9.1 GB, for extend you must use disks with same size or greater (18.2, 36.4,...) but smart controller will use for extend only capacity 9.1 GB and remainig capacity will stay unuse.
But not unusabel, ramaining capacity you can use for create another logical drive (but it is not recomended).
