    Hello all,

    I wanted to see if anyone might know or have tried...
    I have two disks in RAID1 on a NAS200 with stock firmware V3.4R79

    I am considering to upgrade to Jac4, but I am curious if I might loose access to my data. I realize a backup is the cautious thing to do... but I really don't have the space to back it up elsewhere.

    If I pull one drive and try the Jac4 firmware and something goes awry, can I flash back to the original firmware and use my other drive to "return to normal"?

    Thanks all!
    -Cheers, Peter.

    It should work and you shouldn't lose any data by flashing my firmware. I always recommend making backups, of course. If your data is valuable enough for you to ask these questions, you may want to ask yourself if you should improve your backup strategy.

    Note that you may run into some small problems if you use the special features of my firmware because I don't test with RAID configurations (I only have one NAS200 and I don't trust RAID). It should be possible to work around all of those problems.

    Reverting back to the original firmware is easy, because the web interface on my firmware is exactly identical to the original firmware. All you need to do is download the latest stock firmware and use the Firmware Upgrade page in the web GUI to flash it.

    Thanks for the confirmation. :)

    And sorry for the question posting twice. Browser fubared and I didn't think it submitted.
