I don't know whether this supports 4TB, but it will wipe the disks when you put them in to create the file system.

Shoot wipe the disks grrr lol was thinking about it wouldn't it be worth building a tower so I can have as many hdds in it? What you think

Thank you for ya reply

Use this site, homeservershow.com/for…es/ that forum post shows you can have 4tb drives, you don't need to format etc as far as I'm aware.

Also from memory, you have to flash the bios with a modified one.

My N40L is running fine with 16GB ram and 3x3TB drives

It wont wipe the disks when you put them in. If you have an OS on one, sometimes you may get lucky and it will boot and reconfigure drivers etc, but recommend a clean install for OS.

If you want to get clever with RAID then you will have to rebulld the disks, but if you just want to rack and stack non-redundant storage you will be fine.

PS - i have 4TB disks in mine (3 of them in RAID 5) and it works just fine.
