Setting up a Diskless MyCloud EX2 Ultra - How Should I prepare the drives I want to use?

Hello all,

I bought a disk-less EX2 Ultra and I already have 2 x WD RED 4TB disks.

What’s the best way to prepare the disks for initial set up of the EX2?

Should I format them in Fat32 or something similar and then allow the EX2 to do its own formatting during setup?

I know this is probably answered somewhere else on the forum but I haven’t been able to find it!

Hi jackd95,

When you will configure the RAID on your My Cloud it would erase both the drive automatically. You don’t have to do it manually.
