Reallocated Sector Count Increasing Daily

Hey All

I've got an NV+ with 4 x 2TB drives in it.   I'm getting daily Logs showing the reallocated sector count increasing on DIsk 4 which would seem to indicate it may be close to failing.   My question is if I replaced it with a HDD of higher capcity, would it increase the overall storage capacity of the NAS.   I know that with the raid configuration a higher capacity Drive will be restricted to the sized of the smaller drives but the underlying question is this:   If I replace 1 HDD with higher capacity today, then replace the other other 3 at a later time, will they all expand to their full potential or will they remain restricted to the original capacity of the existing drives?

Thanks!

The maximum disk size supported by the NV+ v1 (4.1.x firmware) is 2 TB.  Larger drives won't work.

Beautiful Thanks!

Replaced the bad drive with SD Red  Got 11 years out of the old Constellation.

Decided to replace the other 3 as well, 1 at a time.  So Here's the question.  Once I pull these other drives, is there a way to reformat them NTFS or exFat.  Just plugged one into Windows and Disk Manager doesnt recognize it.

Disk Manager should see it, so something is off there.
