Shrinked Array - Unsure about Device Disks Numbering

Hello,

 

I followed the Shrinking Array wiki guide and maybe amd over the last couple of weeks I have removed two drives from my array. Things are working fine but I'm wondering if the disk number on the Main tab should be readjusted or if there is some hidden placeholder where the old disks were. Screenshot attached:

If I add a new drive to the array in the future, will that new disk take the disk 4 slot currently hidden?

Doesn't hurt anything to skip disk numbers. It's all up to how much your OCD can handle before flipping out

If you assign it to disk4, it will. The slots aren't hidden when the array is stopped.
