Replacing disk in B2?

I've got a B2 that I haven't used in a while. Now it seems like the disk is dead and I want to replace it since I want to start using my B2 again? Will the B2 accept 4TB disks?

Regards / Fredrik

The Excito "B2" model (current Linux versions) will only support up to 2 TB drives.

I installed a new Western Digital 2TB RED (NAS) hard drive, part number: WD20EFRX
then installed (and updated) the Bubba 2 image.

Appears to be working fine, now with 4 times the storage !
I noticed that the WD hard drive is quieter and cooler (40-42 degrees C) in operation.
