Had a disk in Lacie 5Big array Raid 5 reported as failing soon by Softraid, not the Lacie Management software. Replaced affected drive in Lacie enclosure. After this, Lacie RAID Manager software no longer saw the array. Two hours with Lacie troubleshooting and they recommended I try Softraid to either repair of re-stripe and format array. Installed Softraid 14 day demo and hav certifies all 5 disks. When attempting to create new volume per instructions I encounter Volume size selection. What do I enter here? The 5 discs in array are 2TB each.

RAID 0?

Use the default 64K stripe unit size.

Then just use the standard 16K stripe unit size.
