Hello aroff,

Yes, you can do this after creating two volumes of each 2 4TB drives and configure them under two different RAID volumes. You may follow below steps in this regards:

  1. First, remove 2 drives from My Cloud EX4100 and keep only 2 drives

  2. Login on My Cloud dashboard and configure new RAID volume. You can refer below article to configure RAID set up in My Cloud device:

  3. After completion of first RAID configuration, insert the remaining two hard drives in My Cloud enclosure

  4. Follow the same process as above to create second RAID volume

Note : This process is Data Destructive and cannot be undone. Once the process begins, ALL THE DATA ON THE DRIVE WILL BE LOST.
