Using the R4 with a MIniMac server. Everything went fine for years, but now I cannot seee the promise as a normal HD like before. The system see it only as a Volume at the root. By chance I had made some alias of the most important folders I had in, and I can access only with those. The volume is seen but not highlighten, I cannot move it. I attach the subsystem info.Another problem that probably was already discussed in the past: the 4 HD are full now and I would like to upgrade them with bigger ones. Is it possible?

One of the drives broke last year and I tried to change it with several other disks (same capacity but different brands) and they were never recognised by the Promise. I find on the net another Hitachi drive of same capacity and it worked finally. Now that I have to change them all I am scared. Of course the local shop says that I have to change everything. Is it really like this? If yes then I will not another Promise for sure.
