AUTOMATIC DATA PROTECTION

LinkStation Pro Quad features four hard drives and support for multiple levels of RAID redundancy for a customizable blend of capacity and data protection.

  • RAID 0 combines all drives into a single array offering maximum capacity with no redundancy
  • RAID 1 mirrors two arrays, creating an exact copy of data for fault tolerance
  • RAID 5 stripes the data across all four drives, interspersing parity data to provide an efficient blend of fault tolerance and storage capacity

EXCEPTIONAL PERFORMANCE

So far has proved a good system for home use - centralised data storage for documents / spreadsheets etc plus video/audio storage for entertainment. The instruction book is not the clearest and you have to persevere to get the thing up and running but once you are there it seems fine.

This is a disaster waiting to happen. An absolutely appalling piece of equipment. Files you copy onto it go missing or get placed in the systems "trashbox" (buffalo version of the recycle bin) for no reason - you can literally copy three files over and watch as two appear where you want them to be and the third just gets copied into the bin which will be automatically emptied if you don't notice. For three files, fine - you can check - but why should you? Now imagine you are copying your entire photo or music collection? Thousands of files, hundreds going missing. This should NEVER have come to market and buffalo say there is "no problem" with it.
