WD30EFRX more than 5 drives in a NAS?

I have a 8 drive NAS with 4 WD30EFRX right now but wants to increase number of drives later!


Does it work with more than 5 drives in a NAS? (In WD30EFRX spec it says designed for 1-5 drives)

Why would it not?

You can use more than 5 drives

it will only depend on the RAID setup you use

for 6 or 7 drives it’s recommended to have raid 6 or 10


Thank you!

That means that SHR will not work or?

Is RAID 6 better than RAID 5+spare?
