RAIDXpert2 - Long creation time of Raid 1 on 2x 2Tb

Discussion created by mjelic on Jul 20, 2019

What kind of time-frame should I be looking at for RaidXpert to create a Raid 1 array made of two identical Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm 2Tb drives?

 

Mine managed to get to 20% in about 8 hours.  Does it really take 32 hours to get this task done?

 

And if I have a drive failure, how long will it take to make the replacement drive part of the volume and be back up and running again - two days??

 

My friends tell me I should be using Windows to do the raid... I really didn't want to... But this is kind a silly.
