I have replaced all the drives in a Pegesus R4 (was 4 x 1TB) with 4 x 3TB drives. How do I set it to RAID5 as it previous was

Sorry Venkatachalam

I was just reading re Initalization - Do I have to do that before the synchronization or can it be done at the same time - Thanks again

The synchronization process will take several hours to gets completed. Please make sure to set the background synchronization rate is high.

- Open Promise Utility -> Click Background activities -> Click Settings -> Change the rate to "High" and save it.

Thank you.

Thankyou

The information provided worked

How long do you think the Synchronization will take? and is there any other background task I should be doing

 

Thanks

You have to change all the drives to unconfigured state and create an RAID5 setup using automatic option.

- Open Promise Utility,
- Check under physical drive tab, the status of the inserted drives, it will be 'Pass-Thru', click on 'settings' for the Physical drive and change it from 'PassThru' to 'Unconfigured' and CONFIRM it.

Thank you.

I have unlocked and the only option in the wizard is the Advanced

It does say under Wizard

"There is only passthrudisk in your system"

Thanks in advance
