Hi

My buddy has a standard gen 8 with 4gig ram and 4 x 6tb WD reds, O/S is Xpenology but it seems on 2 of the drives are seen by Xpenology, is hardware limited to 12tb or Xpenology?

What are his options please?

Many thanks

K

Thank you managed to sort the problem

For reference (so that if other users run into the same issue), how did you sort/solve the problem?

well its abit of a long story but keymaster put xpeneology on my gen 8 Id bought a dodgy drive in past and it crashed the system so the software that worked before wouldn't work I replaced drive and moved things about and sorted the problem but never wiped OS so some of my programs still don't work properly but once I started downloading more things I didn't have another drive so I bought a drive and tried to use a usb 3 caddy to send things over which wouldn't seem to work so I thought it was down to hard drive capacity but never put drive in actual server since yesterday the software I was using has been getting updated and things seems to be repairing themselves overtime but the drive is now in and fully initialised many thanks
