N4100EVO, max harddisk capacity
#1
Hi guys,

What is the max harddisk capacity of the Thecus Nas N4100Evo

Ik now have 2x 3TB Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 installed, als JBOD
Wil it do, when i at 2 more disks of the same size?

Hi bennyb1,

Current the HDD is supported 4TB HDD on N4100EVO, the 16TB in maximum capacity.

Moreover, RAID JBOD is is a simple grouping of drives to create a larger virtual drive. This grouping provides no performance benefit.
RAID JBOD also offers no redundancy and, in fact, decreases reliability — if any one member drive fails, the entire array cannot be used.

Please refer to <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAID">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAID</a><!-- m --> for your reference.

If use 4 x 3TB HDD, we recommend to set RAID 5 at least.

Hello Victor,

Thank you for your very useful reply.

The reason why I choose JBOD,
is Because The maximum use of the hard disk capacity (i think)

files are stored on the Nas fact already are a complete backup of my two PCs,
so i gues i do not need a RAID configuration on the Nas. (but perhaps im wrong, tips are welcome)

Yeasterdag i added a Thrid 3TB hard dist to the JBOD,
but surprisingly, the Nas only showd 7.98 TB capacitiy.

Why do I lose 1TB?
Is it realy possible to add more then 8TB?

Greetz, Ben

Hi ben,

RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) is a set of technology standards for teaming disk drives to improve fault tolerance and performance.
However, there is not meaning no need to backup data in RAID environment. There is still have a chance which two drives hang up in the same time.
So that's why we recommend to do 4 x 3TB HDD be RAID5 at least.

As for adding problem, when you put new disk to the NAS, please go to web interface,
1. Storage >RAID, click Edit and select the new disks
2. bottom options will change from "Apply" to "Append"
3. click the "Append", following the wizard and system will auto process.

However, the 3TB is kind of big capacity, therefore, the resize may need to spend time.
Moreover, the data default percentage setting is 95%, if you had been modify before, after new disk added process is finished, you have to do expansion process to increase the data usage.
