Pro video blog…Produced by Philip Johnston DoP/Editor

NOTE : If you need to see the finer details watch the tutorial in HD.

This came about because like many of us you don’t want to do the wrong thing, especially when it comes to very important data. I did not want to discover I was rebuilding the whole 12TB RAID rather than the new 2TB drive I had just installed.

This tutorial gives you clear simple steps how to install and rebuild a new hard drive, this will save you time contacting Promise Technology as the process is relatively simple…once you know how !

The 2TB drives are guaranteed  by Promise for 2 years so although I bought my own for speed of install, Promise should send me a new drive in the post so its worth leaving a web support reply.

My thanks to the Promise Technology Netherlands support team for getting me back up and running a service that gives me full confidence in their product…drives fail…its just a mater of when.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
