 Operating a RAID system requires at least two or more storage drives. These work together and form a group of drives.

-==== How to set up a RAID configuration on XH270? ==== 
- 
-__The following requirements must be met before setup.__ \\ 
-The XH270 must be ready for operation with at least two hard disks installed and connected to the SATA ports.\\ 
-Boot Mode in BIOS must be set to UEFI.

- 
-1.) \\ 
-\\ 
-Power on the XH270 and while booting please press the “Del” key to enter BIOS. 
-Navigate to the “Advanced” tab, and enter "SATA Configuration"​.
