How do I set up or change the RAID mode for my hard drive enclosure?
Note: Any data currently on the drives will be lost during this process. You need to back up all of your data before you set a RAID mode.
To set a RAID mode, complete the following:
- Turn off the hard drive enclosure.
- Set the RAID switch to the RAID mode that you want to set.
Note: JBOD is only supported in a DAS (Direct-Attached Storage) connection. If you set JBOD in a NAS (Network-Attached Storage) connection, only one hard drive will be accessible.
- Press and hold the Set button and turn on the hard drive enclosure.
- When the enclosure is turned on, release the Set button. You may hear a buzzer sound coming from the enclosure, which indicates that you set or changed a RAID mode.
Note: When you change the RAID mode again, complete the steps above to set the unit back to JBOD before you set a different RAID mode.
