Q: Can you move / transfer / migrate the same 3 or 4 or 5, RAID5 drives to another XigmaNAS server and still maintain the data? Can you do this for SoftRAID1?
A:
Yes! The software RAID is not tied to anything except what is on those disks and the software itself. Remember to backup your configuration file before you start. You can use it as a reference and in case of emergency. You should also backup your data unless you really know what you are doing. Before you start, make sure the array is in good working order and there is no damaged data, then read the following for background on how/what to expect and do.

Tip: Don't make moving your data more difficult than it has to be, stay with the same version of XigmaNAS. You can always upgrade the OS later, after you verify all your data is OK.

Advanced Software RAID ⇒ All versions
