Array Configura on and Maintenance
A 2-bay device can typically be configured as RAID 0, RAID 1, or JBOD. Each RAID level has its own
advantages:

RAID 0—Data is not duplicated on both hard drives in RAID 0. This results in faster transfers and more
storage, since the full capacity of both drives can be used to store unique data. However, RAID 0 lacks a very
important feature: data protection. If a hard drive fails, all data in the array is lost.
RAID 1—RAID 1 provides greater safety since data is duplicated on each disk in the array. If a single disk fails,
the data remains available on the other disk. However, this comes at a cost—since the same data is written
to each drive, copying data takes longer and overall storage capacity is reduced by 50%. RAID 1 is a good
choice when safety is more important than speed or disk space.
JBOD—”JBOD” stands for “Just a Bunch of Disks”, meaning that your two drives have not been configured as
an array and operate as two independent disks.

Note—LaCie Rugged RAID Shuttle uses Seagate Secure encryption, which does not support a
JBOD configuration.
RAID and data security
While RAID levels higher than 0 can protect data in case of a single drive failure, they cannot guarantee
complete data protection for all cases of hardware failure or data corruption. To help prevent the loss of your
data in case of extreme circumstances such as hardware failure, LaCie highly recommends that you keep at
least two copies of your data, one copy on your LaCie storage device and a second copy on one of the
following:
Another direct-attached storage (DAS) device

A network attached storage (NAS) device
Some form of removable or archival storage
Any loss, corruption or destruction of data while using a LaCie hard drive or a LaCie hard drive system is the
sole responsibility of the user and under no circumstances will LaCie be held liable for the recovery or
restoration of this data.

5. Your device may require an additional physical action to complete the modification (for example,
pushing the power button on the back of the device or inserting the end of a paperclip into a pinhole).
Follow the onscreen instructions.
After modifying the RAID configuration, your operating system prompts you to initialize and format the array.
Follow the instructions to format the array and use it with your computer. For more information about hard
drive formats, see your product user manual.

Frequently Asked Ques ons
RAID levels
Why doesn't LaCie RAID Manager support JBOD ("just a bunch of disks") as a RAID level for Rugged RAID
Shuttle?
Rugged RAID Shuttle uses Seagate Secure encryption, which does not support a JBOD configuration.
RAID ini aliza on and other opera ons
Can I disconnect my computer during RAID synchronization or initialization?
Yes. Synchronization and initialization continue uninterrupted when the computer disconnects from the
LaCie device. Similarly, your LaCie device can be placed into low power mode or powered off during
synchronization and initialization. Provided the same hard drives are in the enclosure, the operation
continues once the device is powered on.
Initialization has been running for days. Has initialization become stuck?
With higher capacity storage, initialization can take many days and, in some cases, well over a week. This is
especially true of background initializations. You can check Device settings in LaCie RAID Manager to see if
the processing for initialization has been moved to Low. Reducing the processing allotted to initialization can
slow down initialization while helping to improve performance. To speed up initialization, move the slider to
High. The device’s performance can be negatively affected when the slider is set to High.
Can I perform more than one operation at a time, for example, run a disk check while an initialization is in
progress?
Only one operation can be performed at a time. Therefore, you can run an initialization and then a disk check
but not at the same time. The same is true for a consistency check and an array upgrade.
