SHR to SHR 2


Recommended Posts

This has probably been covered but can't seem to find the answer. I setup a friends server. He's running 3 2 tb hard drives setup as SHR. He bought another 2 tb drive and wants it to be setup as SHR 2 as he is real paranoid about losing data. My question is can we just add a 4th drive and convert to SHR2 or do we need to start from scratch. I will be doing it for him and don't want to screw it up. Thanks in advance

Just for info raid is not for backup it’s for redundancy. If he is really paranoid he should have a proper backup.

Now regarding shr to shr2. Yes you can. Simply add a new disk. You will then be able to convert to shr2 but the volume will need rebuilding and will take more or less time depending the quantity of data you have.
