Please explain FlexRaidFS as pool OS setting
« on: October 22, 2013, 05:19:19 am »
Whats it for?
Why and when to use it or change it?
What are the other options?
Can it be changed if needed with data on the drives?

Thanks.

Could you point out in the Wiki which feature you're talking about? I'm having trouble working out what you mean.

thanks for the reply.

On this page: http://wiki.flexraid.com/2011/08/23/setting-up-the-storage-pool/
Look for the section "Configuring the advanced properties (optional)"
It is the last setting on that picture, and the explanation is "FileSystem: This setting is reserved for future use and can be left at its default value."

It says future use, but seems to have some affect on what you can do now.
I have read that you couldnt do certain things with it set to FlexRAIDFS. Some switched to it NTFS manually and saved.
I for example cannot seem to run .exe files from the pool. Before I switched to NTFS, i want to make sure i wont mess up functionality of FlexRAID or have data loss/corruption.

It is safe to change the value of that field.
