I have a basic understating of how various levels of RAID's work.  I have a server that has 3 HD's, 36GB Each and they are configured in a RAID 5 Array.  My question is, in my computer how come the available space is 69GB?  I was under the impression my available storage ability should be the size of my smallest drive.  Thanks in advance.
