 I have a Fasttrak TX2300 opperating in a Windows 10 system.  Want to change from RAID 0 to RAID 1.  The manual says to hit Ctrl-F on bootup but it just blows by and boots up Windows.  How do I change the array?

Hi Keith,

We are sorry to inform that Fasttrak TX 2300 has reached its end of life and there will not be any software or hardware update for this unit. Windows 10 is not a compatible OS. Kindly go to the link below to download the compatibility list.

Hi Keith,

I'm pretty sure that the problem is Windows 10 fastboot, which makes it impossible to even access the motherboard BIOS. There's lots of chatter about this in various forums, but I don't think we need to worry about that yet.

Checking the product manual, the migration you want is not a supported migration. Only 1 migration is supported.

          

The only supported migration is from a 1-drive RAID 0 to a 2-drive RAID 0.

Generally however, R0-R1 is not a supported migration as the R1 has only half the capacity of the R0, so there is no way to preserve data in such a migration. If you want a R1, which is a great idea, you will have to copy your data off, delete the R0 and create a R1.

If you decide to do this, you can still download WebPAM from the legacy downloads. If it installs in Windows 10, and I have no idea if  this will work, then you will be able to manage your storage without the Fastrak BIOS.
