Prepare the hard drive and create RAID set.
Select a RAID type in Step 2:
- Standard – Creates two separate volumes (or one volume if only one hard drive is present). Each hard drive is its own volume.
- JBOD – Combines both hard drives in a linear fashion which will create one large volume geared towards maximum available space.
- RAID 0 – Combines both hard drives in a striped fashion which will create one large volume geared towards maximum performance.
- RAID 1 – Mirrors the hard drives for redundancy. If one hard drive fails, the other still has all of the data. Replace the failed hard drive and it will re-mirror, restoring maximum data protection.
Do not configure any other settings, these will be configured after create the RAID set and formatting the drive.
WARNING: formatting the drive will erase all data.
