I just got done installing a back-up solution into my 844/x and I am please to tell you that it works... so far. Here are the components:
- A standalone Granite Digital Aluminum Rack Mounted Dual Drive Unit
- Silicon Image SATA card from granite Digital into my 844/x
- See at http://www.granitedigital.com/catalog/pg61_alumhotswap2-4-8rack.htm
There was only one slot left in my machine... the one in between the 2 844/x cards. I ginger disconnected the connecting jumper between the 2 cards and slipped the SATA card in between. Fired it up and everything appears OK... including the performance of the 844/x.
My question is: Has anyone ever copied folders of media off their drives onto another storage device and then brought them back? Does the 844/x succesfully link to the copied media files? Obviously, I am hoping that it is seamless.
Here's hoping... Thanks!
