Today I bought a DNS-343 and had planned to set it up as a full RAID 5 setup expecting to get 3/4 of the space according to the nature of the array. But when I had tried to set it up, it said some stuff about RAID 5 volume being created and remaining being JBOD, so I did it and it came to about 90GB (strange...).
So, I came on the forum and saw some people talking about doing the custom method, selecting RAID 5, then specifying the max amount available, so I did that (ext3), and it built and formatted the array no problem. It is now displaying the drives as 4,423,105MB which is good, expected, and 'should' last me a long time.
Just curious, but has anyone had any problems with this setup not working out properly in the end? I just want to make sure this setup works correctly for others before I get too far ahead, since I completely avoided that default JBOD setup... right now I am copying my data from my smaller DNS-321 to it...
