Im new in this forum
I just bought my DX4000. It the 12 TB(4 x 3TB).
I wanted to use it with 3 disks and keep one for backup. But when I start first time the DX4000, it did’nt give me option about using 3 or 4 disks and made a RAID 5 with 4 disks. I try to remove and use recovery to force it to have 3 disk and give me 6 TB of space… but it won’t work. After reading in this forum… here the fact.
1 - For now, My DX4000 is setup with 4 disks. (8.93 TB free)
2 - I have a USB flash drive but I cannot make a recovery flash drive because I only own USB 3.0 flash drive (no 2.0).
3 - I cannot access my DX4000 for now but I can ping it.
4 - I download the ISO file for PANAM and checksum is OK.
My question : How can I downgrade the DX4000 to use 3 drives and have about 6 TB free (without error), to kept one drive for backup?
Hope I’m clear
Thank you for any help!
