Move from Netgear NAS202 to TerraMaster F4-210

Post by scottybones1971 » 24 Dec 2020, 23:49

I am in the process of transferring data (movies, docs, etc.) from my NAS202 to my F4-210.

My NAS202 is configured as Raid 1/JBOD whilst my F4-210 I've configured as Raid 5. Can I physically remove the two drives from Netgear to the TM NAS without losing data? Or do I have to continue using windows File Explorer to transfer the files?

Following Specs pertain:

Netgear NAS-202/Firmware 6.10.3
2 Drives - 2TB ea

TerraMaster F4-210/Firmware 4.1.32-2008031214
3 Drives -
Slot 1-2TB
Slot 3-1TB
Slot 4-1TB

Request advise.
