I have recently bought an ICY Box NAS but am unhappy with the performance over my home network and have decided to settle for a RAID'ed DAS eSATA solution. I mainly want to back up my pics so this should do fine. The problem is that i have already transferred some of my files over to the NAS. The 2 drives are formatted in ext3 format. My question is: will i just be able to take them out of the NAS and put them in the new DAS? I am thinking of getting the Thecus N2050 DAS. Thanks. Cyp.
