i bought a fantom g-force megadisk NAS drive;2x500 gb
and a fantom 500 gb external drive.
im trying to format the nas drive as a raid1 which im pretty sure means that one drive is going mirror the other realtime. the other 500 gb is going to backup the raid drive on a daily basis, and then i want to have the 500 gb drive backed up offsite/online nightly.
im gonna take this one step at a time and im prolly gonne be back with a couple of questions in the process, the first thing is formatting the drive and creating a raid system. the drive is running some sort of linux os i think, and it allows me to format to fat32, ext2 or ext3. when i attempt to create a raid i can only choose between ext2 or ext3. i thought ext was read by linux only and i know that fat32 is soewhat outdated and limited. what do i do from here?
p.s. any suggestions regarding online/offsite backup?
