I just acquired an HP DL320s server that has 12 drive bays for either SAS or SATA drives.  My question is, can I mix the two?  I acquired 8 300gb SAS for my main data (in a RAID 5 as the C drive), but I am interested in getting 4 750gb SATA drives (in RAID 5 as the d drive)  so that at night I can set up my backup program to copy everything from the C drive to the D drive.

In theory it sounds good, but I just need to know if it will work or not.  Please let me know.
