The 4-bay NAS has a single chassis with its own cover. Except for the disks, none of the 4-bay NAS's internal parts are serviceable or replaceable at your location. Contact Seagate customer support if you are experiencing problems with your 4-bay NAS.
Important info: Refer to the product's Warranty before performing any hardware repairs or maintenance that is not described in this manual.
Add a USM hard drive to the 4-bay NAS’s USM slot. Once the hard drive is inserted into the slot, use Windows Storage Server 2012 to manage the new storage.
Review the instructions below to:
Drives in protected RAID volumes are hot-swappable (e.g. RAID 1 and RAID 5). However, it is not possible to hot-swap more than one drive at a time in a single volume. If you are replacing more than one drive in a volume, wait for synchronization to successfully complete before moving to the next disk.
Important info: Consider the following when adding or removing hard drives: replace an existing or faulty drive with a drive of equal or greater capacity; when handling drives, make sure that they are placed (and stored) on a cushioned surface.
Note: Seagate hard drives are optimized for use with your 4-bay Rackmount NAS. See Seagate NAS HDD for further information.
