I have four 4TB WD drives, I would like to span them so that I have two 8TB drives. Can this be done, and if so … how? I plan to use the first span for all my files and the second as a backup.
Hi pecck1, yes it is possible, check page 67 of the manual for more information.
I taken a look and it doesn’t go into much depth with spanning.
When I click on the “change raid mode” and select “spanning” I’m only given the option of having “Volume_1” with 15,984GB. What I want is to have “Volume_1” and “Volume_2”, each with 8TB. I’m trying to stay away from RAID as all my drives are the “black” series and they aren’t that great for RAID.
