Raid 5 with different size disks?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I got a 320gb harddrive for christmas. I asked for a 300gb, because i already have a 300gb and would like to set up a raid 5 array. However, i got a 320gb. Is it possible to still set up a raid 5 array with different sizes of harddrives?


I'd guess its possible but i'd just throw away those 20gb, but can anyone confirm/deny this for me?


And yes, i do plan on getting more than just 2 harddrives for the array I just want to know what more i need to buy to get it to work as intended.
