so i wish to sell my nas now that i own a r610 server and using it for storage and rendering.  Will windows read the drive and allow me to copy the files off of it directly via sata or will i have to copy over 3tb of storage via my slow home network [ Ethernet ] i dont want to risk the drive being wiped when i plug it in to my desktop.

I have several ReadyNAS units, though not that one. Assuming you formatted the drive in a standard format, then you should be able to read it without issue, but as always, the proof is in the pudding, pull it, see if it can be read. You won't damage anything by trying. At least not in my ReadyNAS experience with my NV+/NV2

I installed ext2 volume manager and it mounted it to my computer but when clicking on it, it asks to format. looks like i did not set it up to a standard format

Bummer...

Does the ReadyNAS have a USB port in the back? Mine has a one-touch backup to USB drive...

I understand about formatting. I always use standard formats, just in case. Yes I lose performance but I gain it back in compatibility.

Much luck to you
