Resize RAID5 Volume Question

Active Member

During creation of a new RAID5 volume on Monterey running SoftRAID 6.3, one of the disks failed Certification.  I don't have a spare of the same size, just a smaller one.

I have a machine on Mojave running SoftRAID 6.2.

If I create the new RAID5 volume with the one smaller drive on the Monterey machine, will I be able to resize the volume on the Mojave machine once I obtain a replacement disk?  (another post (Cannot Resize Volume - with lots of free space) appears to imply that could work)

If you have 6.0.5, you can resize, yes.


You do not need to install the driver, just resize and quit.
