What do you plan to do with you WD 12TB ?


No Data drive can larger than the Parity drive(s).

Sorry for not clarify, 12TB is unused, plan is to use  2xSeagate IronWolf 8TB (ST8000VN004) for now with  2xSeagate BarraCuda 8 TB(ST8000DMZ04) for parity after while when i get another 12TB i will swap these parity drives to data and use 1 12TB for parity and then will insert other 12TB as data. Is that scenario is ok or all drives must be same rpm?
