Hi Guys

Decided to get off WHS and move to a NAS with my HP N36L. I'm considering unRAID, but having to clear all the drives is a problem as I want to use existing 2TB drives. I can probably clear one, so can i build an "array" of one drive, copy 1 of my existing 2TB drives over, clear the second, add to array, copy 3rd, etc.

Can I create a single drive "array" while I migrate the other drives?

Thanks in advance

Mark

For anyone else considering this, it seems to be possible

It is possible. All you've got to make sure is that your data drive have enough space. After your are done transferring data then you can assign a parity drive.
