I have a 1.5T dual drive MBWE II (blue rings) which has 2x750GB drives inside it. I would like to replace these drives with something bigger. From reading on this Wiki it seems that the maximum drive size i can upgrade to is 2x1T. There seems to be a limitation on the blue rings. I would like to see more confirmation of this point though. On TeinturMan's website he states that the problem is Linear cannot exceed 2x1T. But that RAID 1 can do 2x2T.
So to upgrade to 2x1T, here is the process as outlined by TeinturMan and using some of the tools he developed.
- unplug the 2x750GB drives
- use MybookFormat feature to format a brand new 1TB hard drive., using the double drive Blue ring MybookFormat tool
- perform all steps, so that you have a Mybook 1TB hard drive ready to be used ( but with no data)
- replug (exactly as they were) the 2x750 gb drives in your Mybook
- plug your newly formated 1TB drive to your 1,5TB Mybook via usb cable
- copy all the data to your new 1TB drive (partition4)
- replace the 2 disks with your 1TB disk in your Mybook ( now the 1TB disk contain your data)
- plug a brand new disk as second hard drive and follow standard recovery procedure from Western Digital menu…
- keep your 2x750GB drives in a safe place for a few monthes as a safety measure…
