    1019+ on the way. Planning set up. Should I use SHR or Raid 6? Any reason not to have just 1 volume?

    Question Adding last 2 discs to 4-bay NAS

    I ordered the last 2 WD red discs (finally) for my DS418play to fill up my NAS. So, I just add them one-by-one and that's it? What about RAID? It's ok to leave SHR? Thank you for your help.

    Question Raid type for RS1619xs+
