MDADM RAID5 coversion to RAID6 and drive sizes.
Currently ive got 5x 1TB drives in RAID5. Im about to add a 6th, at the same time i want to add another drive and convert to RAID6, is this possible?
Also, can i add a 1.5TB drive, use 1TB of it and then later down the track add another 1.5TB drive and use both unused 500GB to combine them into a 1tb partition (for use in the raid)?
Will this effect performance of the raid or system?
