I am trying to setup iSCSI LUN for my NAS326 and I am a newbie on this subject. Currently I have 2 different size internal SATA hard drives. So, I can have redundancy backup for my files and pictures. In the past, I have lost way too many family pictures with the way I kept my files. I am (as I am typing) trying to recover one of my old hard drive. Will that works for the setup for this? Sam question as when I needs to upgrade my hard drive in the futures too.

    In my knowing, iSCSI LUN is just a way for disk space sharing to PC and it can mount the virtual disk on PC via ethernet.
    It's not for redundancy for backup usage, if you want to back up your picture/file, it seems that you should use RAID to do so.

    Thanks, that's what I thought RAID suppose to do. But when it comes to iSCSI LUN I was lost.
