Does it matter if there's a "gap" in my drive list?

Unraid recently reported my disk 6, of a 7 disk array, was failing, so I followed Space invaders' very helpful video and copied off the data using Unbalance and then used the script to write zeros on the drive to preserve parity.  then powered down and removed the failing drive, which was by then listed as Unassigned.


My question is - is it OK to have disk numbering go from Drive 5 to Drive 7, or should I move drive 7 up into the drive 6 location?
