So I'm thinking of building a data kit - if I have a raid unit like the Lacie Thunderbolt 2big and I tell it to use mirroring, then can I then pull the drives and use them independently? Will they mount if I put the drives in a drive toaster? Or would they just insist on rebuilding the array?
I was waiting to see if anyone else would respond & since they didn't...
Bottom line: You aren't going to be able to "split up" the RAID set & then use each drive as it's own.
Generally with any RAID, once it's RAID'ed, that's it. 2 drives in JBOD is 2 volumes, no problem doing what you want to do. 2 drives in RAID 0 always will be in RAID 0. 2 drive mirrored (RAID 1) will always want to be mirrored.
