Mixed Raid-0 and Raid-1
« on: October 08, 2015, 11:06:56 PM »

Newbie NAS question...

Is it possible to setup 2xHDD on Raid-1 (redundancy) and 1xHDD on Raid-0 (non-critical files) on DNS-340L at the same time?

Hello,

I would like to help, but i really don't know. Try the manual.

I personally have 4 disks, 2 with 2 TB on raid 1 and another 2 with 500 GB on standard. Maybe you can play with the other 2 to achieve your goals.

I know it's not a big help but ......

Maybe someone who knows will help you !!

Best regards

I don't think you can have different RAIDs on one NAS at the same time. You have to pick one.

I recommend using non RAID formatting and set Standard formatting (Windows) and use the drives like you would in a PC. Each one could be used as a back up of the other or from PC sources.

I will just add one comment.  You can't make a RAID array with only one disk.

In the case proposed by cyp1983 with only three disks.  You can have a RAID 1 array made with two of the disks and the third can be formatted as a standard disk.  Doing it that way should do what cyp1983 wants.
