StoreEasy 1430 8TB default RAID

Dear all,

 

I have a the storage below:

 

HP StoreEasy 1430 8TB SATA Storage with the product number B7D89A. 

 

I want to know what is the default RAID that the ORIGINAL RECOVERY DVD will configure once i run restore to defaults.

 

Because now I have configured a RAID 5 manually and it lost his serial number, now I need to re-install using the original DVD but i´m afraid it will configure RAID 6 and not 5.

 

Please someone clarify me.

 

Regards,

Nelson Chamba\

I assume you're taking backups frequently and know why RAID 6 is better than RAID 5 for such large drives?  (You can handle a two drive failure.)
