    Hello everybody,

    New guy question or more or less a clarification.

    Regarding RAID more specifically RAID 5 (example: 3 or more hard drive configuration). The way I understand is that if you start off with a RAID 5 system with 3 or more hard drives that you can not add any additional hard drives to the RAID system. Is this correct?

    Or, can I continue to increase the storage space by adding additional hard drives to the existing RAID 5 system?

    Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
