Readynas Duo 2xRAID0

I have read through previous posts about this issue but can't seem to find the right bit I need to do.

I have 2 2TB drives and I would like to be able to use the full space with no redundancy, but I don't want to strip the data, I would like to have 2 volumes. Lots of people talk about how they have c and d volumes, but when I configure it with X-RAID it says its striped and there is nothing mentioned about c and d.

Does anyone know where I am going wrong?

I have also deleted the volume once its started up and I cannot see how I can create 2 different volumes, it just doesnt seem to have the option, am I going mad!?

Thanks for any help.

To do what you want you need to use Flex-RAID not X-RAID. Instructions to make the switch are here: Configuring Your ReadyNAS for Flex-RAID. You'll need to backup your data, do a factory reset, then discover NAS using RAIDar etc.

Sorry I did mean Flex-RAID, thats what I had done, but started in RAID0, so I need to configure in RAID1, delete volume, is that different than doing it in RAID0 then deleting, as I have already tried that?

OK, home now, and I cannot get this to work, I delete the volume and then have the option to create one, I create one with one disk as RAID 0, it wants to restart so I let it, then when I reboot I have no option to do anything with the second drive, any ideas?

You have to wait for the first volume to finish being created before you can create another one.

After all that the drive is actually faulty which could be the reason I could get it set up, on Mac, Linux, Windows and my ReadyNAS its seen as a drive of 0Kbs, opps, I will get it replaced and try again, thanks mdgm 🙂
