Has anyone heard of putting different size HDD's and different speed drives in one RAID array?

  1. You can do different sizes but it will make it to the dirve with the smaller size for exampl a 1TB and a 500GB drive in a RAID 0 would only give you 1TB (500GB from each drive) for a RAID 1 it would only give you 500GB. (I have done this myself temporarly)

    I really would not reccommend RAIDing with different spindle speeds (5400RPM, 5900RPM, 7200RPM), I'm sure the computer wont like that.

    Ideally it is best to use the same drives models in a RAID enviroment.
