NAS200: Replacing failed drive in Bay 2: How?

    Hi all

    I have (had?) my NAS200 setup with RAID1 with two 1TB drives. Recently it seems that one of the drive (in bay 2) went bad (only light for disk 1 was on) and I could not access my drive anymore.

    I replaced the drive in bay 2 with a 2TB drive I was having laying around and started the NAS up. I did NOT use the tool yet to format the second drive since I am worried that it will also reformat my drive in bay 1. Is that going to be a problem?

    Any help is highly appreciated!

    I have to admit I've never used RAID with the NAS200 so I can't be 100% sure, but from what I understand, the NAS200 will automatically rebuild the array as soon as you assign the new drive to it. Of course with drive 1 being smaller than the new 2nd drive, it won't use your entire disk but I assume you know that already.

    Make backups!
