I have a 2050 with 2 x 320gig drives. After using the 2050 for 1yr, I decided to change it from raid0 to raid1. I moved the switch to raid1 and waited 2hrs for the 2050 to rebuild the new array, but it didn't and it's still stuck on raid0. The raid selector switch slides fine from left to right. In the raid1 position I can still partition & format the drive as if it's in raid0. I'm suspecting the raid selector switch may be faulty. Any ideas?
The Thecus N2050BD is a cost efficient eSATA/USB2.0 external hard drive enclosure that supports 2 SATA 3Gb/s drives, up to a total capacity of 1TB. The N2050 is a superb choice for media buffs that have a large media collection, and need to access it in a hurry. With eSATA, the N2050 boasts up to 3Gb/s of data transfer speed – that's six times faster than high-speed USB 2.0!
The hardware RAID controller lets you set up a RAID array. Level 0 gives you high speed access. Level 1 mirrors the information onto both hard drives for maximum data security.
The included eSATA card makes it possible to attach the unit to almost any PC and have the computer see the drives as internal drives
