Will converting from RAID 10 to RAID 5 cause any data loss?

We're re-purposing a NAS unit from a file server type device to a backups-only device.  Need more storage than speed now, want to go from RAID 10 to RAID 5 to free up some space.  Want to make sure we're not going to lose any data this way?

No. You cannot convert from Raid 10 to Raid 5 or the other way around without losing data. You must backup, change the Raid setup and restore.
