I like to know a few facts about the mirroring function of our NAS. As it takes a mere 6 hours to (re)mirror an external 250GB drive, it would be nice to know beforehand what is going to happen if you do this or that.
1 - Can you mirror the internal drive with one that is smaller?
2 - If I take a mirror from the NAS, with savely remove, what happens if I attach the mirror after that (if I did not change anything on the mirror)? Does this take another 6 hours or not?
3 - The same question, but now I have changed some files. Will these changes go to the inner drive, or are they wiped out? Does this takes 6 hours or not?
4 - Can you have different shares on one of them?
Well, anyone who has some experience with detaching and (re)attaching is kindly asked to utter his knowledge.
