N54l Can I convert raid 5 to SHL

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Currently running a N54L with 4 x 2TB drives.

Reading about SHR am I correct in thinking I will get more available disk usage and if so can I convert raid 5 to SHR ?

Also what the advantage of adding a 5th drive and is it a simply process?

 

thanks

Dave.

With all drives of the same size there is no benefits for you in SHR. Leave it as RAID5. You can add another drive of the same size or large and expand RAID5 volume to it.

The only benefits may be if you start replacing drives to larger size. Each replaced drive will give you immediate increase in volume with SHR. With normal RAID5 you will not see the increase until all of the drives replaced.
