NAS 542 use Raid Type Basic with multiple Disks

Hello, I have two some questions regarding using the NAS 542 without Raid (aka Basic).
In the Manual it says for use with a single disk. Can I still use it with multiple disk which are used as separate disks?
And if so, if one Disk would fail, would the data on the other drives be unimpaired? Thanks.

    You can use it with many disks as separate disks. And if one fail, the others will be fine. Just create a volume on every disk.

    Hi, I honetly trying to do the same thing on this NAS but I always end with more disks added in multiple standalone basic drives but unable to access the newly added one. 
    Could you please tell me the exact "What to do list"?

    In "Volume on Disk Group".
    I can see "Disk Group 1" and "Disk Group 2" containing Volume 1 and Volume 2 but when I use File browser I can only see things located on first created drive which is Volume 1.
    Looking forward for any help.
