I recently purchased a WD My Cloud EX2. I left it set up in RAID1 mode. Now I’m reconsidering that decision.
If the device fails, I would like to be able to easily access the data. So I’m wondering what my options are.
For RAID1, are the individual drives accessible as a regular JBOD drive or do I need a RAID controller to
access the data? If so, is it commonly known what other devices have a controller that is compatible?
Same question for JBOD. Is JBOD mode truly JBOD? Could I take each disk and access it on a regular O/S such
Same question for spanning mode. I presume your data is not easily readable unless you have a RAID controller?
What’s the advantage of spanning over RAID0? Or is each disk treated as a different volume?
