Does this RAID system have 2 - 2TB drives in it or does it have 2 - 4TB drives / What is the real storage capability?
I understand RAIDs stripe data & even 4 - 4TB drives only gives you 4TB of storage, not 16TBs.

RAID 0 is striped, which is to say, half is written to each drive, so you don't lose capacity, except whatever you normally lose for system overhead.
RAID 1 however is mirrored, so each drive has all data, thus giving half the total for usable space.

Total capacity is 4TB. If you use RAID, your effect storage will be less.
