Answer:
Since the data is mirrored on all disks belonging to the RAID 1 array, the array can only be as big as the smallest disk. So you will be sacrificing drive space unless the NAS will allow a RAID 1 array on two 4TB Drives and a separate RAID 1 array for the 2 6TB Drives, which I'm not sure about.

*Update* It looks like it may be possible to add the two 6TB Dives as a separate RAID 1 array, however, I would research this a bit further. https://community.wd.com/t/ex4100-2-drives-raid-1-and-one-single-disk/101381 see less

Answer:
A "mapped drive" in file explorer is also known as a "network drive." There's a reason for that...you can map a network drive as the "z" drive, or "x" drive, etc. and use Windows file explorer to access the NAS drive files rather than use the WD NAS drive user interface while you are connect to the network.

There's a reason for that...you can map a network drive as the "z" drive, or "x" drive, etc. and use Windows file explorer to access the NAS drive files rather than use the WD NAS drive user interface while you are connect to the network. That certainly makes it easier to access files, attach them to emails, etc. However, once you are no longer directly connected to your office network, then you'll see some verbiage that "not all network drives are connected." So, you won't be able to access the mapped "z" drive unless you are on the network...either the one you've set up in the office, or a network you may have set up at home. One option is that if you have VPN access from a remote location, you are ostensibly working within your network's environment. So, under a VPN scenario, the network drive should be available to you. If you are not on your network LAN or hooked up via VPN, then you will have to use the cloud drive's pop-up drive window on your desktop (or on your mobile device if it has been activated). It's not ideal, but you can drag-and-drop files from your remote computer to the NAS drive cloud interface relatively easily. see less A "mapped drive" in file explorer is also known as a "network drive."

Yes, you can if you have a PC, but I would caution you that I had great difficulty getting it to work right with my Mac.

They're all internal fan. I bought mine a year ago and put it (and my router) on a UPS system. No regrets.
