Is WD My Cloud ex2 ultra encrypted by default


I wonder if WD My Cloud ex2 ultra encrypted by default?
I have just setup my NAS and out of the box it was set to raid 1, but I cant see anywhere if my data is being encrypted or how to toggle encryption.

Hi kiwo123,

You should have a look at the link given below.

Hi @alex.s

So its not enabled by default?
Now I have lots of data in my NAS and I want to encrypt it. But if I understand this right I have to erase my data and rebuild . the raid 1 with encryption. I dont really want to download everything, then reupload everything again once encryption is turned on

Hi kiwo123,

Unfortunately, RAID encryption is not enabled by default. We have to configure it while configuring the RAID.
