Yeah, I know. Thanks - unfortunately, their hot-swap drive bays are full.
However, after I posted it, it finally percolated through my brain that
they were still under warranty (5 yrs is what we buy), so I just called
Dell, and am told they'll do 4TBs. Now, that, I assume, means they'll take
larger, but he's researching it for me to be sure.
