    • Question about filesystem-union

      Hi everyone,
      I need to add a second RAID1 to my NAS, so I was thinkin to use the plug-in filesystem union.
      I have a few question about it:
      1) it won't erase the data on the hard drive right?
      2) Will I still be able to access at the single RAID 1 if I want? Example: what if I want to copy a file in A instead of B?
      3) Is it safe to use? Or you suggest to not use it?

      Thjanks to everyone that will answer!

      No, it works on top of other filesystems.

      Yes. Nothing happens to the underlying filesystem.

      We wouldn't have a plugin if it was unsafe. I use it and have for a long time. The developer of mergerfs is very active in development and helps on this forum quite often.
