Adding A New HDD

Adding A New HDD

Postby Goon2712 » Wed Jun 22, 2022 5:46 am

I have a 4 bay NAS which currently has 2 x 16TB HDD’s set to RAID 1

I want to add another HDD, 10TB.
Can I do so and use it independently of the other drives, or when adding drives must they form part of a RAID?

Thanks for your help.

You can add as a single drive.

BTW - I see you're into RC Heli's.
Me too, but absolutely useless at flying them, so I cheated and bought the Fly Wing FW200 :)
I may also buy the FW450

No problem. Nice to know someone with similar hobbies.

It's been a while since I flew a 450 or 600, now I only fly DJI drones due to stricter regulations :lol:

I've had a few DJI drones, Phantom, Inspire, Mavic.
I'm now contemplating buying the DJI 3 Pro - seems a very good drone which, due to its weight, is not so restrictive, in the UK at least.

Wow an Inspire. My first was the OG Mavic, Mavic 2 Pro then the latest cutie sub 250g haha small but it's a league of its kind. Yes it's a very good drone, you should get it. I thought of getting the Mavic 3 but too much restriction nowadays. So I had fun flyin the mini 3 in my small room. Even created a hood for the RC:


Sorry guys OT a bit :D

Yes, sorry, the thread went OT. (Nice shade BTW)
My fault :D

Just to bring back on topic, when I put the new drive into the NAS, do I have to synchronize it?

You don't need to sync single drives. Only certain RAID need to resync/rebuild.
