Please make sure Channel Setting is set to Channel 1 or Channel 0+1 once Volume Set has been created. USB 2.0,
1394b and eSATA connections utilize Channel 1 setting.
Quick Volume / RAID Setup
Quick Volume and RAID Setup are the fastest ways to prepare a RAID set and volume set. You
only need a few simple keystrokes to complete. Although disk drives of different capacities may
be used in the RAID set, the MR5S1/ MR5CT1 will use the smallest capacity of the disk drive as
the capacity of all disk drives in the RAID set.
The Quick Volume and RAID Setup option creates a RAID set with the following properties :
1. All of the physical disk drives are contained in a RAID set.
2. The RAID levels associated with hot spare, capacity, and stripe size are selected during
the configuration process.
3. A single volume set is created and consumes all or a portion of the disk capacity
available in this RAID set.
