NAS542 fault

Options
My nas542 has turned off by itself and does not turn on anymore, the power supply works regularly so the fault depends on the internal electronics. I was wondering if I buy a new nas542 and move the 4 discs to the new nas respecting the order will they work without problems? They are on raid 1. Thanks for the help.

    Yes, another 542 will accept the disks. But as the configuration is stored on a flash partition inside the NAS, you'll have to reconfigure the box, including re-activating the shares.

    Thanks for your attention, but the data on the disks would be lost or just the network configuration?
