I just got a My Book Studio Edition II as a Christmas present, but unfortunately my parents didn’t double check if it supported Linux. I run Ubuntu 10.10 as my main OS and all the data I want to back up is on ext4 partitions.
My question to you is if I can set it up under Windows for RAID 1, then reformat it in Ubuntu to extX and use it as a backup device without completely breaking it.
Thank you in advance!
EDIT: I understand that “Safe Shutdown” won’t be available, but as it isn’t in eSATA mode either I guess I can do without it? Will it void my warranty if I use the device without “Safe Shutdown”?
