    How do I replace one of the 500GB hard drives in my NAS200 RAID 1 Configuration.
    It is my intention to remove one drive, which will then become my Off-Site storage/backup.
    And replace it with a new 500GB Drive.

    I feel I need step by step guidance with this task...
    To help me avoid impacting the integrity of data on the Top Drive during the swap over of the Bottom Drive.

    I would appreciate comment from someone who has successfully tackled this...

    From what I have read in this Forum, I believe all I need to do is...
    a) turn off the NAS200 power,
    b) remove the lower drive,
    c) insert the new drive,
    d) turn on the power and a few hours later, the new disk mirroring will be complete.
