Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

RAID 5 is basically an N-1, so you get access to two of the drives. Or about 36 GB of usable disk space

Correct answer is 33.89 GB – parity is distributed on all disks ant takes some space.

    yeah its about 34 gb...a way for calculation is this. raid 5 takes away 1 hdd, so you have 2 left, jz multiply it by 2 and minus some of your NTFS files or etc and you will get the figure..
