My Book Studio II 6 TB - Replace Drives with bigger / faster

2 related questions

  1. in the event of a failure, should I choose to, can I use 4TB Green drives for a total of 8TB?  Is there anything in the firmware that would prevent the 4TB drives from functioning?

  2. As a follow up to #1, would I be able to replace the green drives with red drives if I chose to?

Don’t know if it will work, it might recognize the new hard drive but limit the size to the original drive size. I would call tech support on this one. 

Yeah, I’ll need to call. Figured someone might have actually tried this by now. Also wondering if an upgrade to USB 3 might be immement since all new macs have it now.
