Hello,

Just bought the DS213J model at Microcenter today for $189. I also picked up a second 4 TB HDD to match the one I currently have. I have a question about setting it up. My current 4 TB HDD is already loaded with photos/movies/songs and I want to keep that data. I was hoping I could install the new HDD, format it, and then add my current HDD to the NAS after initial setup and have it Raid 1 after the fact.

Is this ok? I do not want to lose my data!

Other thing I was thinking about was to set up my NAS with the new HDD, then copy all of my data from my current HDD onto it, then bring it in the NAS and format it and set up RAID.

Please help the NAS newbie smile.gif
