I added four 3TB drives to the EX4 I just bought and decided on RAID 5. It’s been blinking lights for 3+ days now, I can still access the couple of test files I put on the first drive and there is no way for me to tell how far along the process it is.
I read on the forum some users are changing settings using command line (I think that’s what they called it) but that it voids the warranty.
So far the NAS is a doorstop piece of junk…slow, buggy and unreliable.
Is it normal to take almost 4 days to reformat and set up the RAID structure?
