Title: DNS ShareCenter - Adding New HDDs While Preserving Data
Post by: JavaLawyer on February 20, 2012, 06:26:23 AM
This procedure is designed to safely add hard drive(s) (HDDs) to an already-configured ShareCenter with at least one empty HDD slot, while preserving preexisting HDD configuration and data. This procedure does not apply to replacing faulty/small HDDs or expanding the number of HDDs in an existing RAID array (RAID scaling) or JBOD. You should maintain a full backup of all critical data on a separate physical storage device prior to performing this procedure.
