SHR protection only on one group

Postby jaapaap » Wed Oct 18, 2017 4:29 pm

Is it possible to use the SHR protection/mirroring off two hard drives only on a certain group?

I have one group for myself and one group as a Time Machine for my mac. I think it's a bit a waste of space to have two back up's of my laptop because I also have CrashPlan. So I would like to use the mirroring option only on my personal group and use the 3TB I reserved for Time Machine for a second group/party.

That is not possible.
Raid based systems work by disk, not by part of a disk.
Please share if a reply was useful or how the issue was solved, it helps other DS users.

DS415+ (4TB HGST+ 4TB Seagate raid1 + 2*480GB SSD raid1), DS212+ (2*WD red 2TB), previous DS411J, DS106
