- I have 2 x 1TB drives in a RAID1 configuration.
- One of the hard drives has failed and so my RAID situation is degraded.
- All data is backed up via Backblaze as well so I'm not worried about losing it.
- I'd like to upgrade while I'm replacing, to buy a 2 TB or 3TB drive, hook that up to the Raid 1, and then replace the working 1 TB drive with another 2 TB or 3TB drive when it eventually breaks.
Is this an alright idea (assuming I don't plan to hit the 1 TB threshold anytime soon), and does Intel RST allow for this? I'd like to know before I go spend my money.
