Quick question from a novice here… I have 2 WD Red drives (3T) installed in my MyCloud EX2 enclosure configured in RAID 1 mode (mirrored). For extra backup safety, I wanted to buy a third drive that I will swap in and out periodically (every month or so), storing it off site in a safe location. Two questions:
What do I have to do to format my WD Red Drive to be recognized by the MyCloud EX2?
When I swap out the drive and replace with the new empty drive, do I need to take any action to create the mirror or is this automatic?
Similar to question two, when I replace the old drive back in the enclosure in a month or two; what do I have to do to make it sync with the active drive (and make sure it does not happen vice versa; i.e. it syncs to the old drive and not the most recent version
Thanks for your help with questions from a newbie.
