First post from a newbie; well versed in the technology but not in the Linkstation!

My LS-WTGL/R1-V3 F/W 3.09 has 2 1TB drives in a raid1 array; been working fine for years but I need more space! In another product, Dell, I just put in a bigger drive, let the array rebuild, swap the other drive and presto, move on. I've been reading posts on the forum and oit looks like much more work on the LS. So...

1. Is the process for what I want to do the same/similar on the LS?
2. If so, what's the biggest drive I can stick in the LS?

Tanx in advance

My expectation from what I've read is that the process would work. You should end up with the same sized drive, then a reformat (losing all data) to get the larger drive.
As for the largest size of hdd the LS-WTGL/R1 will support. Other posts indicate 2gb work fine, presumably you are looking to upgrade upto the max possible.
