I'm pretty sure OOTB the ReadyNAS is configured for RAID-1 mirroring.

Yup! Brother thing. We're both config'ed the same - probably the same make/model drives, too. LoL!





Took me a while to haxor into the CP. Couldn't remember my %$#! password  ::)

I see we share the same username. Dude, this is getting creepy!

Wonder if we have the same password, too  8)

I'm starting to think we're escaped cyborgs from planet Farfelbaab ...

Strangely enough, my SSD was delivered yesterday, even though it still says my order is unfulfilled on their website. Instead of Asia, which is what I feared, it shipped from Lexington KY. Anyway. I haven't had time to study the disks thing, but I think what you guys have basically said is to just go ahead and sort of auto-format my SSD like I normally would with PM7, and deal with adding the HDD later, using "disks" on the operating system. Right? I don't have the HDD yet. And I'm thinking maybe I'll go 4TB. Beyond that and the price seems to really jump.

Yup, you got it.  ;)

I simply formatted my HDD as one big drive using Ext4. The 'Disks' app comes later, for tweaking the settings, like editing the mount options, and so forth.

You can actually do it all in 'Disks', if you want. Whatever you're comfortable with.

Like most things in Linux World, there are lot of ways of doing the same thing...

The only thing you need worry about as far as formatting the SSD is what type of partition table to use.

If your system is UEFI you MUST go with a GPT partition table.

Once you've chosen and applied the partition table .. don't bother adding partitions and formatting, the installer will do all that for you .. just do a default installation (preferably without LLVM and full disk encryption, unless you're a masochist).

OK. I'm up and running on the SSD as of early yesterday. I'm not positive about the GPT partition table, but I all I did was the standard default installation.

Probably stupid, basic question, but what's the best way to take a screenshot, like you did with disks? I used PrtScn and got a screenshot (albeit a bit blurry) but then wasn't exactly sure how to display it here.

EDIT: I looked at GIMP and it looks like the cockpit of the space shuttle or Mars Rover or something.
