This NAS came with 4 40GB drives, I ran it as a RAID5 for a couple of years. I replaced the drives with WD1200JB 120GB drive (ATA 100/m Mode 5) and ran it for a couple more years. Now I would like to replace the drives again. What is the largest drives it can handle and what type?
I do have a couple of Hatachi 250GB ATA/133 (hdp725025glat80). I found a couple more I could purchase at
http://www.buy.com/prod/hitachi-deskstar-p7k500-hdp725025glat80-hard-drive-250gb-7200rpm-ultra/q/loc/101/206500235.html  so I can have a RAID5 out of the 4 drives.

Can anyone help?

From everything that I've read, the 4100 only recognizes the first 137GB of the drive.  You're probably better off sticking with what you've got with the 120GB drives.

Thanks, I will use the same drives and run a RAID0. I use this Snap server as a monthly backup so if it goes down I have time/options to recover
