Re: about migrating raid level

Hi Lu

yes migrating from raid 0,1,3 to raid 1,3,5,etc with the netraid assistant let you keep your data safe,
First is better to backup all data.
second you start with CD Navigator, in navigator you start netraid assistant( in this way you work off-line mode)
in netraid assistant, you can add disk in the raid and at this time it ask you if you want to migrate to a superior raid.
at the end of the migration, your OS will be operating and your data still present
!!important, run consistency check before a migration!!

Re: about migrating raid level

If you have installed netraid assistent you can start raid migrating online. In that case set rebuild rate to 50 or less, so users will be able to access disks during rebuild.
