Creating a RAID disk on the LNR0208C 2-Bay Network Video Recorder

It is possible for the LNR0208C 2-Bay Network Video Recorder to create a new RAID disk.  It can also delete or format the RAID disk.  In addition, users can manage the NVR storage device for data transmission and file sharing service.
Follow the steps below to on how to create a RAID disk in the LNR0208C:
Step 1:
Access the web user interface of the LNR0208C by entering the device’s IP address on a web browser.
NOTE:  The default IP address of the LNR0208C is if it is not connected to a DHCP server.  Otherwise, use the IP address assigned by the DHCP server.
Step 2:
Enter the device’s username and password then click Log in.
Step 3:
Click the  icon.
Step 4:
Click the Disk Management dropdown then click Disk Management.
Step 5:
Click the Create tab.
Step 6:
Select the hard disk drive in the Free HDDs list and click the  icon to add into Assigned HDDs list.
NOTE:  As you add drives to the Assigned HDD window, you will notice in the Available RAID Disk section, the size and options of RAID mode you can select based on the amount of drives you have selected.
Step 7:
Select an Available RAID Disk then click Apply.
NOTE:  Creating a RAID disk may take up to a couple of hours or days depending on the hard disk size.
IMPORTANT:  Do not turn OFF the NVR or unplug any hard drives when Progress displays formatting.  Wait until it reads none.
NOTE:  The following RAID Modes are supported by the LNR0208C.
Big Drive (Linear)Big Drive is a collection of hard disk drives and does not provide any RAID protection.  The data are written to the disks continuously.  It has the lowest reliability, so the single disk failure causes failure of the whole array.
Performance (Raid0)RAID0 is one larger volume with two (2) or more hard disk drives.  The data are written to the hard disk drives without any parity information.  The total storage capacity is the sum of all hard disk drives.  It has no fault tolerance and decreased reliability, so a failure of any component disk in the array causes the entire array to fail.
Fault Tolerant (Raid1)Two (2) hard disk drives are required to create a RAID1 array.  RAID1 can provide disk mirroring by duplicating the data between two hard disk drives.  If single disk fails, it can be replaced with new disk without losing the data.
Fault Tolerant (Raid5)Minimum of three (3) hard disk drives are required to create RAID5.  The data are striped in all hard drives in a RAID5 array and the parity information is stored in each drive.  If a hard disk drive fails, the array enters degraded mode.  The data can be rebuilt from other member drives after installing a new drive to replace the failed one.
