It’s been a while since I’ve posted here so I’m out of the loop with a few things. My MBLD is 6TB with the strock hard drives (2 x 3TB Green Drives). I’m currently running them in spannning mode for a total of 6TB of storage. I’ve recently come to the conclusion that 6TB isn’t enough, so I’m looking to upgrade.
When putting new drives in the MBLD, it seems that both drives must be of the same model #, correct?
What’s the biggest HDD someone has placed in the MBLD? I’m currently thinking about purchasing 2 x 6TB hard drives for a total of 12TB (also going to run these in spanning). I know upgrading the HDD capacity isn’t officially supported by WD, but has anyone pulled this off and if so, what size drives did you put in your MBLD?
What’s the easiest way to transfer the MBLD OS from the old HDD’s to the new HDD’s without losing data? Do I have to install both new drives at once and follow a de-brick guide or can I put one new drive in at a time and x-fer the OS from one drive to the other?
Thanks in advance
