- Remove a hot-swap drive bay by pulling the handle toward you.
- Using the enclosed screws, secure a SATA hard drive to the hot-swap drive bay. 2 screw
grooves are located on either side of the hot-swap drive bay.
※Caution: SATA hard drives are of different shape on the front and back. When securing a
SATA hard drive to a hot-swap drive bay, please make sure to place the SATA connector on
the opposite side of the handle of the drive bay.
- Insert the hot-swap drive bay into the back of the main frame. Gently push the drive bay until
it reaches the end of the main frame, and then secure it to the frame using the handle. Repeat
the procedure to insert SATA hard drives to the other 3 hot-swap drive bays.

Initializing a HDD
The SVS-5R shows the status of the RAID operation and connected SATA hard drives through
an LCD on the front panel.
※Caution: The SVS-5R is initially set up to “RAID5 4d”.
Should connected SATA drive fail, the front LCD indicates the degraded status of the SVS-5R.
In this case, you can rebuild the RAID array by replacing the failed SATA hard drive.
- Using the enclosed access panel lock, open the right front panel, and then press the power
switch on the front panel for at least 2 seconds to turn on the SVS-5R.

RAID0
The SVS-5R supports RAID0. Using RAID0 requires 2 or 4 SATA hard drives. When configured
to RAID0 with 2 or 4 SATA hard drives, the SVS-5R saves data as shown in the picture below.
RAID0 saves data across all connected hard drives and storage; it has the fastest speed and
uses the hard drives to full capacity.
※Caution: RAID0 has no fault tolerance; entire data of the SVS-5R is lost if even one SATA
hard drive fails. RAID0 is not recommended for saving crucial data.

In the RAID1 mode, each of the two hard drives stores identical data. Thus, data is not lost even
if either SATA hard drive fails. When a SATA hard drive fails, the SVS-5R continues saving data
to the other hard drive. To ensure data stability however, it is highly recommended that you
replace the failed hard drive and rebuild the RAID array. In the RAID1 mode, total storage
capacity of the SVS-5R is simply the capacity of one drive; please check total storage capacity
of the SVS-5R before configuring it to RAID1.

4.1.3 RAID0+1
The SVS-5R supports RAID0+1. Using RAID0+1 requires 4 SATA hard drives. When
configured to RAID0+1, the SVS-5R saves data as shown in the picture below. RAID0+1 uses
both striping (RAID0) and mirroring (RAID1); it will store identical data to 2 RAID0 disk arrays.
Thus, data is not lost even if a SATA hard drive or either disk array should fail. When a SATA
hard drive or a disk array fails, the SVS-5R continues saving data to the other RAID0 disk array.
To ensure data stability, however, it is highly recommended that you replace a failed hard drive
and rebuild the RAID array. In the RAID0+1 mode, total storage capacity of the SVS-5R is
simply the capacity of 2 drives; please check total storage capacity of the SVS-5R before
configuring it to RAID0+1. The following describes possible instances when 2 SATA hard drives
simultaneously fail during the RAID0+1 mode.
e.g.) HDD#1, HDD#2 fail Æ Rebuilding Can be rebuilt
HDD#1, HDD#3 fail Æ Halt, Entire data is lost
HDD#1, HDD#4 fail Æ Can be rebuilt
HDD#2, HDD#3 fail Æ Can be rebuilt
HDD#2, HDD#4 fail Æ Halt, Entire data is lost

RAID5
The SVS-5R supports RAID5. Using RAID5 requires 3 or 4 SATA hard drives. When configured
to RAID5, the SVS-5R saves data as shown in the picture below. RAID5 uses block-level
striping with parity data to save data across all connected SATA hard drives. Thus, data is not
lost even if a hard drive fails. When a SATA hard drive fails, the SVS-5R continues saving data
to the remaining hard drives. To ensure data stability however, it is highly recommended that
you replace a failed hard drive and rebuild the RAID array. In the RAID5 mode, total storage
capacity of the SVS-5R is the capacity of total SATA hard drives subtracted by one drive.
Although RAID5 has decreased data storage capacity, it is most recommended as it is safest
and has larger capacity than RAID0+1.

4.1.5
RAID5+Hotstandby
SVS-5R supports RAID5+Hotstandby. Using RAID5+Hotstandby requires 4 SATA hard drives.
When configured to RAID5+Hotstandby, the SVS-5R saves data as shown in the picture below.
RAID5+Hotstandby uses 3 SATA hard drives in the RAID5 mode, while putting on the last drive
on standby.
※Caution: In the RAID5+Hotstandby mode, HDD#4 in the SVS-5R is put on standby.
When a SATA hard drive in the RAID5 mode fails, the standby drive replaces the failed drive to
rebuild the RAID array and allow the SVS-5R to continue saving data. To ensure data stability
however, it is highly recommended that you replace the failed hard drive immediately. In the
RAID5+Hotstandby mode, total storage capacity of the SVS-5R is simply the capacity of 2
drives. It is more stable than RAID5, but has decreased storage capacity; please consider the
storage capacity before using this mode.

RAID Rebuilding
When the SVS-5R is in the RAID rebuilding process and its connected DVR is in the Half
D1 or D1 mode, activating the playback option may cause skipping frames. This skipping
frame issue is simply caused by the RAID rebuilding process; once it is complete, the
screen will no longer skip frames and no data is damaged.
4.2.1
RAID0
In the RAID0 mode, ALL data saved in the SVS-5R is lost if only ONE of the connected SATA
hard drives fails.
※Caution: RAID0 does not offer the rebuilding option; you must replace a failed hard drive
and reinitialize a RAID mode.
