  • Question

  • Is anyone running a mix of harddrive types in WHS?  And is it causing any problems?  I have a 320g & 250g eide hd and am thinking of adding a sata 500g to the mix.

  • I have both, and have NO problems.  Well, you may need to install the SATA drivers for your motherboard, but once those are in, the OS sees SATA drives (and lists them as SCSI) and uses them perfectly.

    And external USB 2.0 drives, for that matter.
