5 x 6Tb in Raid5 = 21.8 TB… Why not 25Tb ?
The 5 drives WD Red 6tb are new.
I have no previous experience.
I installed them in an 5bay enclosure ( Mobius, by OyenDigital )
made a “clear Raid” procedure.
The whole thing seems to work just perfectly.
But I dislike to have lost so much space before even beginning:
I invested 30 TB and expected 25 in an Raid5 configuration.
Instead, Win7 analyzes that there are only 21.8 available.
Is that normal ?
Thank You for any hints !
