Migrate Qnap RAID1 to RAID10

Migrating from RAID 1 to RAID 10 – Reinstall and Restore?

I was wondering whether you have instructions for migrating from RAID 1 to RAID 10 for QNAP NAS. QNAP says only RAID 0 -> 1 -> 5 -> 6 is supported online. RAID 10 requires a complete reinitialisation and recreation followed by a restore.

However, I cannot find anything online (and through QNAP Support) that shows how to restore all [QNAP] Applications including their configuration, without having to manually reinstall and reconfigure all non-default Apps after reinitialisation. Doing this manually will be a huge undertaking!

QTS version 4.4.2.

I would be grateful for your advice.

No, RAID10 is something you can start with. But you can no migrate to other RAID options unfortunately.
