I have a Sharespace WD2000 (2x 1TB WD10EARS). After purchasing and installing the software for the above unit it all worked fine in span mode. I wish to use it in RAID 5 mode and needed more WD 1TB drives. The local shop had 2 x 1TB WD10EADS . I inserted the new drives and powered up and have not been able to get the unit to work since. After reading this forum I now know a WD 1TB drive in not alway the same.
My questions are
- Will the sharespace work with the above 4x WD drives? If No, what 4x drives would be the best EARS or EADS?
2 If I reformat the drives is it ok to just use windows format utility and then insert?
It would be good to get this working again in any way either with the 2TB (Span) or 4TB (RAID 5) any help will be appreciated.
