Hi, I have been running the drive initalize (4a option) for 6 hours. Does anyone have an estimate on how long this takes or how to view status. Serial connected and progress is only showing .....? Thank in advance

I've initialized a few big systems, and I wouldn't think it shouldn't take that long.
You're not seeing any err messages ? Progress is showing ?
Maybe patience is a virtue ?
I hope this response has been helpful to you.
At your service,
(P.S. I appreciate points for helpful or correct answers.)

You should have received an estimate number of minutes to complete the initialization at the start of that process.. I believe the 2TBs take about 6 hrs (should not matter how many drives there are since they occur in parallel). I am a bit surprised that you've been running it for over 6 hrs and it is still going..
