Running C6 fileserver. Want to replace 7 year old HDs connected to an Areca ARC-1220 raid sata II (3Gb/s) controller. Has anyone used this controller with newer 2TB SATA III (6Gb/s) WD Re drives like the WD2000FYYZ or the WD2004FBYZ?
sata III drives should work fine with a sata II controller, in sata II mode.
the big issue is if the controller supports drives > 2TB
