Lacie 5Big NAS Pro using SimplyRAID with different disk size

Post by GArlington » Fri Dec 08, 2017 12:40 pm

[As far as I understand 5Big NAS Pro is an update/upgrade of 5Big NAS 2]

I wonder if anybody asked themselves these questions before:

How does SimplyRAID decides how it will allocate space on available varied size hard drives?
What is the optimal configuration for hard drives slots in such situation?

I am upgrading my 5 x 3TB SimplyRAID(RAID5) to 5 x 8TB [eventually] SimplyRAID(RAID5).

I am replacing the hard drives 1-2 at a time and am trying to work out what the optimal configuration may be.

Any help will be very welcome.

I will post my findings later.
