DNS ShareCenter - Standard Volume to RAID-1 Conversion
« on: October 24, 2011, 06:34:41 AM »

This procedure is designed for DNS series device owners who have a HDD configured as a Standard Volume and purchased two new HDDs and want to:

  • Transfer existing data from the old HDD to one of the new HDDs
  • Convert the two new HDDs to a RAID-1 array


Follow these steps in sequence:

  • The new HDDs should be unformatted prior to starting this procedure (i.e. remove existing partitions prior to starting this procedure)
  • Power-down the DNS series device
  • Install one of the two new HDDs in an open slot of the DNS-series device
  • Power-up the DNS series device
  • Configure the new HDD as a Standard Volume
  • Transfer the data from the legacy HDD to the new HDD
  • Power-down the DNS series device
  • Remove the legacy HDD and install the second new HDD in the open slot
  • Power-up the DNS series device
  • The DNS series device should provide an option to create a RAID-1 array (select this option)


  • This procedure will work with the DNS-320, DNS-321, DNS-323, DNS-325, and DNS-343.
  • Store the legacy HDD containing your original data in a safe place as a backup
