This concerns me in software raid dynamic disc config.
and will probably apply in hardware as well....
If I have 2 drives of equal capacity, but they are of different speeds ie: 1 of 7200 the other of 5600 will this allow the raid config to continue or will they slower drive prevail?

thanks

you mean 7200rpm and 5400rpm.

and the 7200 won't actually slow down and spin at 5400rpm... the raid controller will just be waiting on the 5400rpm drive. so basically the same speed as if you had two 5400rpm drives hooked up.
