Re: raid configuration

Yes you can use a larger disk drive. Not all of its space will be used, only the amount equal to the size of the other disks. The remaining space on the new larger disk will remain unusable and inaccessible.

"The remaining space on the new larger disk will remain unusable and inaccessible."

Yes, this is true. Also understand that eventually... if you replace the remaining drives with the same size as the new one... you will once again be able to use the additional space.
