    QB-35US3R: Is it possible to maintain existing data & raid array transformation

    Hi all,

    Planning to buy the QB-35US3R, but having two questions:
    1. Is it possible to maintain existing data on one of the disks when building a Raid-1 array (2-disk setup, one with data second being empty)?
    2. Is is possible to transform the 2-disk Raid-1 array to a 4-disk Raid-10 array without losing data (later on, when my capacity need grows)?

    With regards and thanks in advance for your expertise.
    Ramon

    NO. Existing Data will be overwritten/lost by installing or changing any Raid Mode. The HDD's must be clean to configure any Raid Array.

    NO. It has the same Reason like the previous Question.
