I expect I would have to re-format. Is that what you mean?

Hardware raid is usually propriety and not standardised. Reformatting would work.

Quote:2) "but the rp64 is 3x faster cpu" - did you mean to type rp64pro is 3x faster cpu?

I test hardware using ffmpeg and my test usually takes 15minutes on a r64 but on the rp64 it only takes 5 minutes.

Quote:4) "The nas case has room for 2x2.5" and 2x3.5" drives" - could any 4 bay USB enclosure work?

Sure but you'd still need a case for which ever board you end up choosing, the nas case for the rp64 is a neat solution to house the drives and board.
