    They all need to be exactly the same. (If not, the size oif the array will be limited by the smallest drive).

    Why not build an array from the two disks and have the third disc seperate?

    hmm, i'm very knowledgable in computers, but never with RAID, my sony computer came with the arraw, and has a utility to set up raid or make them seperate, wondering if they are plug-n-play?
