If it is anything like the MyBook Live (most likely is) then the ssh name is "root" and the password "welc0me" (that is a zero "0", not a capital o "O")..

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.

Answer:
Confusing question. If the bay is empty there is no hard disk in it. If there is no hard disk how can it fail? Anyway, I have had zero issues with this product.
