    i believe what will happen is it will recognize the larger one as the same size as the smaller...so 100 and 120 in raid will be 200...im no expert though just remember reading about this awhile ago.

    also remember reading about this,

    "JBOD - Just a Bunch Of Disks


    While not a real RAID style, JBOD is an option on many disk controllers built into motherboards. It is simply a compilation of multiple physical disks into one big, fully usable drive. Sometimes this process is known as ‘spanning'. As it is in no way redundant, it offers no data safety. This setup is only useful if you have multiple hard disks but only want to work with a single, larger drive within your operating system. Also, unlike other true RAID forms, this allows you to use disks of different sizes at whim - and without wasting space."
