(only select one option)

I.Using the JMicron HW RAID Manager utility program

For Windows users, install the JMicron HW RAID Manager located on the SATA Controller CD. In the CD, go to RAID utilities > JMB393. This manager can be used to create and monitor the status of the RAID volume.

Use the RESERVE DIP switch setting when using the JMicron HW RAID Manager.

Note: for the system to detect multiple individual drives, the RAID box must be connected to a port multiplier compatible eSATA host controller. If the RAID box is NOT connected to a port multiplier compatible eSATA host controller, the system will only detect one drive and that is the hard drive in slot HD0.
