G-Raid - Background Synchronization Soo Slow Help

Hi All.

I have two G-Raid Shuttle 8 Bay 144TB units and I formatted one of the units from Raid 5 to Raid 6 which has started the unit to do a Synchronization.

Questions i have:

  1. Do you have to wait for this to finish before you can use the unit or is the initialization enough?

  2. Is there anyway of speeding up the Background Synchronization? I have set it to high in this hope it will but only making getting about 8-10% progress in every 24 hours.

  3. Is it possible to have 2 units doing Background Synchronization on the one MacMini M1? I noticed you have to open up two G-Raid Software Utility to mange them each.

Hey there, I’ve just started the exact same process as you and I was wondering if you found a way to speed up the process? If not, how long did it take in the end?
