    Western Digital WD2500JS + WD2500KS (Mirror Raid Question)
    I currently have a WD2500JS in a mirror RAID and I wish to replace the secondary HDD. I know that I cannot have two completely different HDD's in mirror RAID; but are these two compatible?

    Currently:
    WD2500JS (8MB Cache; 7200 RPM)

    Adding:
    WD2500KS (16MB Cache; 7200 RPM)

    Difference refers to capacity.

    Since these are at the same RPM; and the secondary is at least the same cache as the first (or greater in this case).. Will these correctly support the mirror RAID?
