I am a NAS newbie & am not aware of this 16KB blocksize & SPARC stuff.
I just want to be able to recover/read my data if my NAS hardware fails instead of one of the disks.
So if I were to buy the ReadyNas Duo & run it on RAID 1 and the NAS hardware fails sometime later how can I recover my data without having to buy another ReadyNas?
If you're still uncomfortable with these solutions, you can opt for the Pro (more costly however), which will give you full compatibility with all Linux distros out there today.

Hmm interesting, with iometer i get the same results before and after i changed the blocksize
For a home theatre environment, as our clients are using the Duo for, the performance with the 4kb block size is fine so I'm now looking for a way to revert to a 4kb block size. If we go back to a v3 firmware and reformat and then upgrade firmware, will this work? If so, where can we safely get a v3 firmware from?
Thanks again, Mechanix. Alas, I don't do Linux, so I'm left with the other way
