Thanks a lot E, you pointed me to research and learn more and that's great for starters. Also, by sharing this information just makes this forum better than others, at least IMO. That's why I come here when I have questions or issues and if I can lend a hand.
I got the drives set up in RAID5, I lost 500GB+, but I expected that based on a website calculations on what I should get.
I agree with you, they may have fixed the issue, but you still have to be able to confirm.
Thanks for your help E and I await for the pros to get me to the next step, how do I now confirm that TLER is on or off in my set up?
