Hi,

I have a NSA320 with two almost full HDs. I would like to upgrade both HDs to larger HDs.
Is there a simple process to do that?

I'm using the NSA for media file, windows backup and Apple time capsule.

    What is your volume type? basic? RAID?
    If it is basic, then you can swap one of them with large HDD and copy all data for large disk. then again the same thing for another older disk.

    I'm using simple configuration - JBOD. The two drives are completely separated.
    Should I copy the files using a simple file manager (Using MAC)?

    Thanks,

    you can use NSA's file browser to copy data, it is running in NSA itself.
    If you use MAC's file explorer to copy data, then it takes more time to finish the copy, because data from NSA to MAC, then to NSA.

    What is your volume ? I am using simple configuration and it really works very well.
