Raid Migration from 0 to 5

Postby soultoyo » Wed Oct 19, 2016 6:42 am

Hello Everyone,

I was wondering if it was possible to migrate my existing RAID 0 drives to RAID 5 if I added two more drives with the same amount of storage.

If it is possible, could somebody explain why I am not able to manage volume 1 which contains the RAID array to migrate it to the new raid level.

Thanks

If you look at this support document you can see the migration paths from one level of Raid to another. http://www.asustor.com/online/College_t ... 352&lan=en

It doesn't look like Raid 0 can be migrated to anything. Raid 1 on the other hand can go to just about anything. If you have the storage to shuffle your data off, then change the raid to 1 or just go straight to raid 5 or 6, you might be good. Otherwise I think you might be stuck at Raid 0 for Volume 1.

So according to the link I could migrate from a single drive to a raid 5 or 6, so I could fill up one drive and back up the rest and then migrate.

Thank you for the link and help.
