Changing Hard Drive in a Melco

Changing Hard Drive in a Melco
I hope this is OK to ask here, but I’d like to try a different hard drive in my Melco. Is it just a matter of replacing the hard drives, switching on and letting the Melco sort itself out?

Some while ago I had an unusual fault which corrupted my hard drives and necessitated a hard drive re-format. It was a straight forward process and I was wondering if changing the hard drives would follow the same procedure?

Yes, the process is similar for installing new hard drives. I have done this a few times without any problems. You might want to make a Melco backup from your existing hard drives before doing the swap.

I have a Melco with 2 hard drives. I assume if I change both then they would be reformatted automatically? Any advice on suitable replacement drives appreciated. I think I have a hard drive failing as I occasionally get problems in tracks breaking up during streaming. It gets cured by a reboot. Thanks

WD Reds are good. Put in two blank drives and power on the Melco. It will prompt you to format the drives and will ask if you want spanned, RAID 0 or RAID 1. My preference is for spanned as I think this produces better sound quality.
