Configuring additional hot swappable drives for the ThinkServer TD100X

Question

I need to add drives to my TD100x.  I currently have three drives in a RAID 5 configuration. 

 

Can I add individual drives without creating a RAID volume? I want to use them for image backup of the RAID.

 

I have been using external USB 2 drives, but it takes 5 hours to image 300GB of data.

Answer

You can add drives ouside of an array as these would not be part of the topography of your set-up.
