Title: DNS ShareCenter - RAID Resizing
Post by: JavaLawyer on April 19, 2012, 10:01:58 AM
The ShareCenter series does not presently support RAID resizing.

What is RAID Resizing?

RAID resizing is the automatic resizing of a RAID array when a new HDD of a different size is swapped into an existing RAID array. Using RAID resizing, the usable storage of each HDD is based on the size of the smallest HDD in an existing RAID array. For example, if a RAID-1 array is created with two HDDs of size 1TB and 2TB, the RAID-1 array will format both HDDs as 1TB and 1TB (resulting in 1TB of lost space on one HDD). Using RAID resizing, swapping out the 1TB HDD with a 2TB HDD would cause the RAID-1 array to reconfigure as two HDDs with a usable storage space of 2TB and 2TB with no data loss during the reconfiguration process.
