Windows 7: Can Win7 Create spans with 4TB & 2TB drives

Can Win7 Create spans with 4TB & 2TB drives

My span is currently two 2TB and one 1TB disks. So I have a "virtual" 5TB hard drive. If I purchase a 4TB drive will Windows be able to add that to the span? I have a feeling since the 4TB drive needs to be partitioned as GPT (and the others don't) it might not work. Spans also require the disks to be converted to dynamic drives and I'm not sure if this has any effect on the 4TB drive.
Thanks a bunch.
