Issue Details

I noticed that the HDD-8261 has 4 hard drives each with 1 terabyte (TB) of memory. Can I combine hard drives so that my computer sees two drives, rather than four drives?

Solution

Yes, the NI 8261 HDD uses software RAID to partition the device because there is no hardware RAID controller. You can use a software RAID program, such as Windows Disk Management, to partition your 8261. See page 7 of the 8261 Getting Started Guide for more information.
