LaCie 4big Quadra • Design by Neil Poulton RAID User Manual page 15 3. RAID 3.1. About RAID Modes This section will help you decide which RAID mode is right for your application. RAID 0 3.1.1. The 4big Quadra is pre-configured in RAID 0, the fastest RAID mode. Requiring at least 2 drives, RAID 0 stripes data onto each disk. The available capacities of each disk are added together so that one logical volume mounts on the computer. If one physical disk in the array fails, the data of all disks be- comes inaccessible because parts of the data have been written to all disks. A1 B1 C1 D1 A2 B2 C2 D2 A3 B3 C3 D3 A4 B4 C4 D4 RAID 0 Disk 1 Disk 2 Disk 3 Disk 4 RAID Number RAID Mode Capacity Protection Speed 0 RAID 0 100% 1 RAID 10 50% 2 Concatenation 100% 3 RAID 3 75% 4 RAID 3+Spare 50% 5 RAID 5 75% 6 RAID 5+Spare 50% 7 N/A (no RAID changes will take effect if 7 is selected) Applications RAID 0 is ideal for users who need maximum speed and capacity. Video editors working with very large files may use RAID 0 when editing multiple streams of video for optimal playback performance. A RAID 0 array is more suited for actively working with files (editing video, for ex- ample) and should not be used as a storage backup.

LaCie 4big Quadra • Design by Neil Poulton RAID User Manual page 16 RAID 10 3.1.2. RAID 10 (also called RAID 1+0) is another RAID level that com- bines the attributes of other levels, specifically RAID 1 and RAID 0. It is a “mirror of stripes”, meaning that data is striped across two mirrored arrays. The Striping occurs between arrays and the mirroring occurs within the same array. See the diagram, right. In a RAID 10 array, one disk from each mirrored pair can fail with no data loss. However, the working disk in an array with a failed disk becomes a weak point for the entire array. If the sec- ond disk in a mirrored pair fails, the entire array is lost. Concatenation 3.1.3. When disks are concatenated, their capacities are combined and data is written to the primary disk in the array until is it full, and then to successive disks. Concatenation provides no perfor- mance advantage or added measure of data safety. It is simply a method of combining more than one physical disk into one volume for greater overall capacity. Concatenation allows full use of the capacity of all disks in the array and most data can survive a disk failure. Only data on the failed disk and data that is partially written on the failed disk and an operative disk is lost. Offers the maximum possible capacity by combining the capaci- ties of several drives into one large volume. RAID 1 RAID 1 RAID 0 A2 A4 A6 A8 RAID 10 A2 A6 A8 A4 A1 A3 A7 A5 A1 A3 A5 A7 Disk 1 Disk 2 Disk 3 Disk 4 Concatenation A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Disk 1 Disk 2 Disk 3 Disk 4 Applications RAID 10 provides good speeds because of RAID 0 strip- ing, but cuts the available capacity of a device in half (assume all disks in the array have the same capacity).

RAID 3 uses byte-level striping with a dedicated parity disk (Disk 4 in the illustrations, right) so that one volume mounts on the computer. A RAID 3 array can tolerate a single disk failure with- out data loss. If one physical disk fails, the data from the failed disk can be rebuilt onto a replacement disk. If a second disk fails before data can be rebuilt to a replacement drive, all data in the array will be lost. In RAID 3+Spare, one disk in the array is left empty. If a drive in the array fails, the data from the failed disk is automatically rebuilt to the empty or “spare” disk. Applications RAID 3 provides good data safety for environments where long, sequential files are being read, such as video files. Disk failure does not result in a service interruption be- cause data is read from parity blocks. RAID 3 is useful for people who need performance and constant access to their data, like video editors. RAID 3 is not recommended for intensive use with nonsequential files because random read performance is hampered by the dedicated parity disk In RAID 3+Spare disk failure does not require immedi- ate attention because the system rebuilds itself using the hot spare, but the failed disk should be replaced as soon as possible.

LaCie 4big Quadra • Design by Neil Poulton RAID User Manual page 18 RAID 5 and RAID 5+Spare 3.1.5. RAID 5 combines the striping of RAID 0 with data redundancy in an array with a minimum of three disks. Data is striped across all disks and a parity block (P) for each data block is written on the same stripe. If one physical disk fails, the data from the failed disk can be rebuilt onto a replacement disk. No data is lost in the case of a single disk failure, but if a second disk fails before data can be rebuilt to a replacement drive, all data in the array will be lost. In RAID 5+Spare, one disk in the array is left empty. If a drive in the array fails, the data from the failed disk is automatically rebuilt to the empty or “spare” disk.

LaCie 4big Quadra • Design by Neil Poulton RAID User Manual page 19 3.2. Changing the RAID Mode The 4big comes preconfigured in RAID 0 mode. Before you change the RAID mode of the LaCie 4big, familiarize your- self with the 4big’s RAID modes. See section 3.1. About RAID Modes. important info: Changing the RAID mode destroys data stored on the LaCie 4big. If you have saved data on the drives, back up data before following these steps. To change the RAID mode: Unmount or safely remove the 4big Quadra volumes from 1. your computer, disconnect the interface cable and switch off the 4big. To enter RAID modification mode, push and hold the front 2. button and simultaneously turn on the 4big. Continue hold- ing the front button for 2 seconds. Push the + or - buttons on the RAID mode selector until the 3. desired RAID number appears. See Fig. 3.2. note: 0=RAID 0, 1=RAID 10, 2=Concatenation, 3=RAID 3, 4=RAID 3+Spare, 5=RAID 5, 6=RAID 5+Spare, 7=N/A. Note: Although the number 7 appears in the RAID selector, no RAID changes will take effect if 7 is selected. Validate the mode by pushing and holding the front LED 4. button for 2 seconds. Let the drives turn on, and then turn off the 4big, allow it to 5. shut down and turn it back on. Partition the disks. See section 6. 3.4. Formatting. important info: You must partition the disk drives after changing the storage policy configuration. See section 3.5. Par- titioning the Disks. CAUTION: Your LaCie 4big comes preconfigured in RAID 0 (Fast) mode. RAID 0 allows access to the whole storage capac- ity but does not provide any security. If a drive fails, all data will be lost. If you are concerned about data security, LaCie highly recommends a RAID 10, 3, 3+SPARE, 5, or 5+SPARE configuration. See section 3.1. About RAID Modes, for more information.

To Remove a Drive: If the 4big is in RAID 0 or Concatenation mode, turn it off 1. and unplug it. If the 4big is in RAID 10, 3, 3+, 5 or 5+ mode, you can leave it turned on and continue to step 2. The drive tray may be locked. To unlock it, insert the round 2. end of the provided 2-in-1 tool into the slot on the drive lock and turn the lock until the slot is vertical (Fig. 3.3-A). Draw out the drive tray by inserting your finger into the 3. space behind the drive tray handle and pulling to disen- gage the drive. Grasp the drive tray handle and carefully extract the drive 4. (Fig. 3.3-B). Turn the drive on to continue using the remaining drives. 5. To Install a Drive: If the 4big is in RAID 0 or Concatenation mode, turn it off 1. and unplug it. If the 4big is in RAID 10, 3, 3+, 5 or 5+ mode, you can leave it turned on and continue to step 2. Carefully insert the drive tray into an empty drive bay. When 2. the drive tray is most of the way in and you feel resistance, press the drive tray handle firmly until you feel the drive snap into place and the drive tray handle is flush with the back of the 4big. Use the 2-in-1 tool to lock the drive lock. Turn the locks un- 3. til the grooves are oriented vertically. The drives are locked when all locks are horizontal. technical note: Data are still accessible during a rebuild. The 4big can be disconnected from the workstation during the rebuild, even in AUTO mode; only the power must be con- nected. off Fig. 3.3-A Fig. 3.3-B off 3.3. Removing and Installing Drives Important Info: Drive warranty will be void if you re- place the defective drive with a drive not provided by LaCie. Drives purchased from LaCie are shipped pre-installed in drive trays with handles. Important info: A replaced drive should not have a smaller capacity than the drive it is replacing. Important info: Rebuilding a RAID array can take several hours. For example, rebuilding a 1TB RAID 3 array can take up to 6 hours. This time it takes to rebuild will be increased if you access the drives during the rebuild. LaCie does not recommend removing any drives during re- build.

LaCie 4big Quadra • Design by Neil Poulton RAID User Manual page 21 3.4. Formatting The 4big Quadra comes pre-formatted in HFS+ (optimized for Mac OS X). Please read the following information on file system formats for Windows and Mac operating systems to determine if you need to reformat the 4big’s disks. See sections 3.4.2 and 3.4.3 for formatting instructions. 3.4.1. File System Formats Windows Users The 4big Quadra comes pre-formatted in HFS+ (optimized for Mac OS X). Technical note: Windows XP 32-bit and Windows 2000 do not support volumes greater than 2TB. Windows XP x64, Windows Server 2003 SP1, and Windows Vista Enterprise/Ul- timate (32- and 64-bit versions) do, but in order to create vol- umes bigger than 2TB from these operating systems, you must convert the disk to GPT file system. This process is outlined in 3.4.2. Formatting for Windows Users. FAT 32 FAT is an acronym for File Allocation Table, which dates back to the beginnings of DOS programming. Originally, FAT was only 16 bits, but after the second release of Windows 95 it was upgraded to 32 bits, hence the name FAT 32. In theory, FAT 32 volume sizes can range from less than 1MB all the way to 2TB. It is the native file system of Windows 98 and Windows Me, and is supported by Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Vista. When FAT 32 is used with Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Vista though, volume size is limited to 32GB (by the Windows partition utility, i.e. Disk Manager), and the individual file size is limited to 4GB. NTFS This acronym stands for New Technology Filing System, and it is the native file system for Windows NT, Windows 2000, Win- dows XP and Windows Vista. NTFS offers several features that are not available with FAT 32; i.e. file compression, encryption, permissions, and auditing, as well as the ability to mirror drives and RAID 5 capabilities. The minimum supported volume size for NTFS is 10MB, with a maximum of 2TB when initialized in MBR format or without a limit when initialized in GPT format, with no limit to file size. Volumes created in NTFS can only be directly accessed (not through shares) by Windows NT, Windows 2000, File System Formats There are two different file system formats compatible with Windows operating systems – NTFS and FAT 32 (MS- DOS). Use the information below to determine which for- mat is best for you. Use NTFS if… ...you will be using the drive only with Windows 2000, Windows XP or Windows Vista (performance will generally be greater when compared to FAT 32). This file system is compatible in read only mode with Mac OS X 10.3 and higher. See technical note at left for information on the 2TB volume size limitation under Windows XP 32-bit and Windows 2000. Use FAT 32 (MS-DOS) if… ...you will be using your drive with both Windows and Mac OS X 10.3 or sharing the drive between Windows 2000 and Windows XP or Windows Vista. Maximum single file size is 4GB.

LaCie 4big Quadra • Design by Neil Poulton RAID User Manual page 22 Windows XP and Windows Vista without resorting to help from third-party products. The LaCie 4big Quadra comes preformatted in HFS+ for op- timum performance with Mac OS X. Mac OS X Users: You may customize the drive by reformatting and/or partitioning the drive with separate file system formats. For optimal perfor- mance in Mac OS environments, format and partition the drive as one large Mac OS Extended volume. Mac OS Extended (HFS+) Mac OS Extended refers to the file system used by Mac OS X. HFS+ represents an optimization of the older HFS file system by using hard disk space more efficiently. With HFS+, you are no longer limited by block size. MS-DOS File System (FAT 32) This is the Microsoft file system, more typically known as FAT 32. This is the file system to use if you are going to be using your LaCie Hard Drive between Macs and Windows operating systems.

LaCie 4big Quadra • Design by Neil Poulton RAID User Manual page 23 Formatting for Windows Users 3.4.2. The process of formatting a drive on a computer running Win- dows 2000, Windows XP or Windows Vista consists of two steps: (1) installing a signature on the drive, and (2) formatting the drive. These steps will erase anything that is on the disk. CAUTION: Following these steps will erase everything from the 4big. If you have information that you want to protect or continue to use, back up this information before performing these steps. Technical note: Windows XP 32-bit and Windows 2000: These operating systems will not recognize volumes greater than 2TB in size. Windows XP x64 and Windows Vista Enterprise/Ultimate (32- and 64-bit versions): These operating systems will rec- ognize volumes greater than 2TB in size, but the disks must be converted to the GPT file system before partitions greater than 2TB can be created.
