Not knowing much about RAID 6 I googled it. http://searchstorage.techtarget.com/tip/RAID-6-vs-RAID-10 RAID 6 with 4 drives is not much advantage over RAID 10 with 4 drives and would require a dedicated card. Your N54L will do RAID 1 or RAID 0 But according to Post 7 here will not like RAID 10. http://www.edugeek.net/forums/hardw...r-have-hardware-software-raid.html#post775861 Anybody done RAID 10 with success? My personal setup I have mentioned earlier, I did away with RAID and just have two 8TB drives using scheduled SyncToy overnight. This pretty much only stores media so nothing mission critical or very speed heavy on the network. In the event of failure, I can remove the drives and they will just work in Windows. No rebuilding of a RAID. Have fun with it. I like the unit a lot.
