I want to purchase an EX4100 with 0TB for my NAS and Personal Cloud use.
I have four 4TB WD RED drives that currently reside in a FreeNAS Mini server, v2 that I purchased a year ago. After nearly a year I have proved myself not sufficiently literate or smart enough to use the FreeNAS Mini as a personal cloud. I am going to change to a MyCloud EX4100 server which to seems to be much more user friendly. I intend to take the four 4TB WD RED drives from the FreeNAS Mini and install them in the EX4100.
Should I expect any issues? Will the EX4100 simply install the drives and format them for RAID 5 when I launch the MyCloud Dashboard and select that configuration? I realize I will lose the existing data on the drives.
