    Configure Storage Configure storage by creating disk arrays, logical disks, and volumes. Physical disks can be arranged as RAID arrays for fault tolerance and enhanced performance, then segmented into logical disks of appropriate sizes for particular storage needs. These logical disks then become the volumes which appear as drives on the NAS server.

    Creating Logical Disks Continue using the ACU to create logical disks from the array space: 1. Select the array previously created. 2. Select Create Logical Drive from the right pane of the ACU interface. 3. Complete the logical drive creation wizard to designate some or all of the array space as a logical disk.

That space is then available to groups of client computers on the network. The client computers access this space through a variety of file sharing protocols using the disk space to store their files and folders.
