Disk size extension

Hi.

I have 2 disks 2TB. And I want to change it to 2 disks 4 TB.

 

I want to remove one disk, and insert second disk 4 TB.

After I want to remove second disk 2 TB and insert disk 4 TB.

Is it possible?

If you are running XRAID or RAID-1, then hot-swapping the disks (NAS running) one at a time is the correct process.  Wait until the first disk is completely synced before inserting the second.  

 

Expansion will happen at the end of the process (after the first 2 TB of the second disk is synced, the expansion process will start).

FWIW, Netgear does recommend that you make sure you have a backup of your files before doing this.
