Adding/deleting volume

I decided to try to create a new 1TB volume for Rebit to write to as a backup for my netbook/laptop, in addition to the existing 16TB volume that was already created.

It seemed to have taken a LONG time to create, and reboot, so I thought something was wrong. I turned off the device (yeah, bad idea I’m sure… but, can there be some FEEDBACK from the software?!?). Turned it back on and it mounted the existing 16TB volume; and again asked to format/reboot for the new volume.

Again, same issue… Took forever, turned off/on, etc…

So, I thought… hey, I’ll just delete the volume. Also, taking forever (like an hour so far). With NO feedback…

Should this not be faster to add/remove volumes? or, am I just being impatient? Help, please? :slight_smile:

you say long/forever

how long did it ACTUALLY take? 1 minute? 3 minutes? 5 minutes? 15 minutes?

you complain the software gives no feedback, and then you give us no feedback!

The first time, it was an hour, and it seemed like it would never complete.

However, I am happy to report that it did, finally, finish. I went to bed, and it was done when I woke up. So, don’t know how long it actually took.
