Using the RAID Utility - PC
The RAID Utility allows you to configure your DriveStation Quattro in several
modes:
Normal Mode - Appears to your computer as four separate hard drives.
Spanning Mode - Appears to your computer as one large hard drive.
RAID 0 Mode - Appears to your computer as a single drive. Higher performance
than Spanning Mode.
RAID 1 Mode - Appears to your computer as a single drive. The third and fourth
drives keep an exact copy of the first and second drives, for redundancy.
RAID 5 Mode - Appears to your computer as a single drive. Approximately 3/4 of
your total space is usable, yet you still have full redundancy.
Note that changing the mode of the drives in your Quattro will erase all data on
them! Back up any important data before using the RAID utility.
You should be connected to the DriveStation with a USB cable while running the
RAID utility. You may switch to an eSATA connection for normal use after the
utility has run.
You may launch the RAID Utility by clicking on RAID Setup Utility in the
DriveStation Quattro program group.
Or, you can launch the program from the Start menu:
Once launched, the RAID Utility will briefly scan for your DriveStation
Quattro. This may take a few seconds.
The initial screen will show your current configuration. If your Quattro
is new, it will probably be in RAID 0 mode, with one high-performance
partition. If you want better data security, Buffalo recommends RAID 5
mode, with its excellent balance of security and total capacity.
To change the RAID mode, click Configuration and choose Change
Disk Structure.
Select the drive structure that you’d like to use.
After rebuilding the disk structure, the disk will be formatted with FAT32
or NTFS. Select the format that you prefer. FAT32 is compatible with
most Windows PCs, Macs, and Linux. NTFS offers better performance
with Windows 2000 and XP machines, but isn’t compatible with other
operating systems.
Click Yes, and Yes again. Understand that this will erase any data on
the drive!

The Format Utility is a simple utility that allows a user to format the DriveStation for use in a Windows
System. Reformatting the drive erases all of the information on the drive. Only reformat the drive if
absolutely necessary.

Install the Format Utility by running the EasySetup Wizard
from the DriveNavigator CD (This is done by inserting the
DriveNavigator CD into a Windows System). Click on
‘DriveStation Utilities’.
Click on the ‘Disk Formatter’ button to launch the utility.

Disk Formatter Utility – The Disk Formatter Utility main dialog
box contains information regarding your system’s drives and partitions.
When launched, the program displays your system drive, giving you the
ability to alter some of the partition information on your main drive.
WARNING: Please use extreme caution when using the Disk
Formatter Utility. When launched, it shows all hard drives on the PC,
including the main boot drive (the one that contains the partition “C:”).
Do not modify the main boot drive! Only use this utility to modify the
external hard drive with the name “USB-HS...”
Select the ‘USB-HS...’ drive from the pull down menu. This is your
DriveStation. It is not recommended that the Disk Formatter Utility be
run on any disks except the DriveStation.
Once the proper disk has been selected, place the cursor over the
purple partition and click. If more then one color is there, then more
then one partition exists. In this case, click on the partition you want to
modify.

Once the partition has been clicked, the appropriate options will appear.
Physical Format - Press the ‘Physical Format’ button to begin a physical
format. This process does a low-level format, cleaning the disk completely.
This process is not recommended unless serious disk errors are occurring.
The process can take up 4 hours to complete, depending on the DriveStation
size. You will receive multiple warning dialogs before you are allowed to
begin the physical format.
NOTE: The status dialog box for the physical format is simply a timer. It
counts the amount of time that has past during the format. Each time the
bars reach the end, it adds one minute. It is in no way a progress meter.
Unfortunately, there is no way to tell how long the physical format will take. It
takes roughly 30 minutes per 80GB.
Delete Partition - Press the ‘Delete Partition’ button to simply delete the
selected partition. You will receive a warning dialog box before the partition is
deleted. Once deleted, the ‘Format’ option becomes available.
