Re: replace hdd with ssd

No, you cannot mix HDD and SDD in a single array.

You may consider either add the SSD and clone the data or backup the data, swap all disks and restore your data.


Hope this helps!

Hi 

Yes, you cannot mix HDD (SAS/SATA) and SSD in a single array.

You can create new logical drive with SSD and clone the disk, or take restorable data backup from existing logical drive and restore the data backup on new logical drive create with SSD drives.
