Max hd size for ds215j?

Unread post by toejam » Thu Nov 23, 2017 9:59 am

I've got a DS215j with 3 tb hd's in it. I'm getting a great deal on 8 tb hd's (hooray for Black Friday!) and want to put them in the NAS, however, I believe the specs say the max HD size for the DS215j is 6 TB. so, what will happen if I try to install the 8 tb hd's in this NAS?
