Dear WD Community,
I have four questions on the DL4100 device:
Can I operate it with only 2 HDDs and mount each HDD to an individual Windows-drive, e.g. HDD1 on F:\ and HDD2 on G:, and then run manual backups from F:\ to G:?
Can I temporarily make one HDD unavailable (without removing it from the device) so that users cannot use it?
When copying files from one to another HDD installed in the DL4100, does the DL4100´s controller realize that and copies data between the HDDs directly and not sending all data over Ethernet the the PC and back again (performance issue)?
I am intersted, how the HDDs are encrypted. When long term backups are stored outside the device (e. g. in a bank safe) and someone steals the device from our office, can we buy a new DL4100 and operate the removed/stored HDD with the new device, or is the encryption linked to the old devices hardware? Can we also encrypt the HDD on another PC without getting a new DL4100?
Thanks a lot for your replies.
All the best
