Changing an LS420 4TB from RAID0 to RAID1
« on: March 18, 2017, 02:29:36 pm »
I have a couple hundred GB on an LS420 when I realize that it is configured in a RAID0. If I try to change it to RAID1, will I lose the data that is currently on it. I have capability for copy all the data elsewhere, but it will be two days to copy it off, and 2 more to move it back. I would like to avoid those 4 days,

FWIW: Managed to research this one out and found my answer. I guess that I will be moving data around before I reconfigure this NAS to RAID1. Manual is pretty clear that reconfiguring will destroy all existing data on the drives.
