Keep in mind that changing the RAID setting on your G-SPEED Studio R will delete all the data on the G-SPEED Studio R.
First, you will need to delete the Disk Array. To do that, please refer to the steps below:
- If the pad lock on the bottom left of the G-SPEED Studio R software is not unlocked, click it to unlock it.
- Click on Disk Array on the top.
- Click on Delete to delete the Disk Array. A warning message will appear, verifying if you would like to delete the disk array. Type in the word “confirm” in the textbox (without the “”) and click on Confirm to delete the disk array.
- Once the disk array is deleted, click on Create Disk Array on the upper right.
- Type in an Alias for the disk array, then click on the drives on the G-SPEED Studio R picture to add them to the Disk Array. The disks will be highlighted in blue once selected.
- Click on Submit to create the Disk Array.
- Click on Finish to complete creating the Disk Array.
- Click on Logical Drive on the top, then click on Create Logical Drive.
- Make sure that the Disk Array with the alias you gave it is chosen, then click on Next.
- Type in an Alias for the Logical Drive. Select the RAID Level you would like the G-SPEED Studio R to be. Keep in mind that you may not see all of the RAID Levels available for the G-SPEED Studio R because this will depend on how many drives were chosen to create the Disk Array and if that many drives can be used in that RAID set. Leave everything else at default, and make sure that there is a check next to Format. This will automatically format the G-SPEED Studio R once the RAID has been created.
- Click on Add to add the Disk Array. You will see that the Disk Array will be added under New Logical Drives.
- Click Submit to create the Logical Drive with the RAID Level you chose. If you choose RAID 0, the G-SPEED Studio R will be ready to use right after creating the RAID. If you created a RAID 1, 1E, 5 or 10, the G-SPEED Studio R will synchronize and build its RAID, usually at about 2 hours per 1 TB.
