I cannot find out whether it is easy to upgrade my Terastation TS-1.0TGL/R5 which currently has 4 x 250gb drives and a capacity of 730gb. Raid array is RAID 5 and file format is XFS.

I don't think that it is possible to "hot swap" drives like I can with my Netgear ReadyNAS Pro. So I am assuming I need to power off to upgrade disk.

I do have a number of mixed HDD's some 2TB and some 750GB. I wondered if I could simply power off, and replace one by one.

I'm not bothered about losing data, as I already have the data on my ReadyNAS.

I'm just wanting to see if I can increase the capacity of my TS-1.0TGL/R5 (TS-TGLA0B) from its original build to allow me to back up some of the data from my ReadyNAS.

I have two questions please

1. Does anyone know the maximum size of HDD disk you can install in a TS-1.0TGL/R5 (TS-TGLA0B)?
2. If it is possible to increase the capacity of my TS-1.0TGL/R5, if I use my spare 750gb x 2 and 2Tb x 2 disks will the "mix" of disks work, or do they all have to be the same size?

I've edited this post as I now realise I did not detail correctly my NAS device Model.
