Several RAID modes are available for LinkStation models with multiple hard drives.
LinkStation with only one hard drive do not support RAID modes.
By default, RAID mode is set to RAID0.
If you change the mode, follow the steps below.
All data is lost when the RAID mode is changed. Back up any important data before changing RAID modes.

※ Multiple hard drives under RAID0 mode are combined into a single array. The total capacity of all drives is usable. It provides faster performance and additional storage. If any drive is damaged, all data on the array will be lost.

  1. Change system to Normal mode first.

  2. Click [System]-[Storage]-[RAID array] on setting screen of LinkStation.
  3. Click the array you want to configure.
