Download The Latest Firmware

Go to the archived section at this address if you have an older Terastation Pro to obtain the latest firmware. And save it to your desktop. Create a new folder call it Buffalo Bios and extract the files using winzip or winrar to this folder. Make a copy of this folder just in case.

Take screenshots of your existing Terastation setup so you have something to refer to later

Backup Your Buffalo Files

Using a reliable temporary place to store your current Buffalo files move them over to a new folder called Buffalo Files. After the files are moved over delete the current Buffalo files just as a precaution and empty the BUffalo trash can folder.

Click on the fourth hard drive, then click on remove you will be asked to enter the four digit number and asked to confirm that this is what you want to do. Do the same for the third and second hard drives. LEAVE THE FIRST HARD ALONE AT THIS POINT.

Shutdown the Terastation Properly

All three lower hard drives have been removed from the hard drive listing, go to the maintenance tab of your Terastation and click on shut down. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT, shutting down this way is the preferred way always so as not to ruin the controller board or any of the hardware inside.

Replacing The Hard Drives

Open the front panel of your Terastation and slide out the old disks, unscrew...
