How to setup raid 0 on ex ultra 8 TB drive - help please.
I am receiving this in a few days, currently on order, when it arrives will the setup give me an option to set it up as raid 0 as I want to utilise the full capacity and not want any backups on this drive.
may help or download the manual while you wait on your unit.
You many only need the JBOD setup and not a raid setup
JBOD is the use of one or more drives not in a RAID configuration but managed as separate logical volumes. Spanning is the combination of drives in a linear fashion to create one large logical volume. The advantage of using this mode is that you can add more drives without having to reformat the system.
I use RAID 1-10 so I can get back in action faster if a disk fails ( as well as local backups )
