Place two new hard drives into PD3500+ and strongly suggest you to use two identical hard drives to get the equal capacity. If the capacity is different, PD3500+ is downward to the small hard drive capacity. 2). Under RAID 0 mode, capacity is add up to a one big volume, also with the feature of faster read/write performance efficient. PD3500+ 2 v1 (June.2015) 1. RAID 1 Mode 1). Place two new hard drives into PD3500+ and strongly suggest you to use two identical hard drives to get the equal capacity. If the capacity is different, PD3500+ is downward to the small hard drive capacity. 2). Under RAID 1 mode, two hard drives has the identical information as one to mirror to the other one, therefore each of the hard drive failed is still able to function normally. When you replace the failed hard disk to the new one the system automatically rebuilding the data to the newly place hard disk. 2 Power Supply Power Supply Connector Please make sure that the contents listed above are not damaged or missing.
