Hard Drive Run


After going to Hawally to pick up the two Western Digital 1 TB drives I was ready to get stared. These drives look like solid drives and they are relatively quiet compared my Seagate hard drives. Before the installation I cleaned up the Infrant ReadyNAS NV and I got the new hard drive harnesses to install into this machine. I followed the instructions step by step, and I did a preliminary configuration of the Infrant, but I will be upgrading the firmware after the full installation.


When installation the hard drives they have to be synced in, and they are set into X-Raid which is Infrants’ proprietary form of raid and it keeps things safe. I bought two WD drives from Kuwait for 90 KD, and I will expand another two later, but those I will be ordering online. The volume creation and syncing has taken a couple of hours, but I will be organizing my network later. I need to start off with the network cables, they really need to be cleaned up and organized.
