Hi Mr Rosh,
Please send logs when you get a chance so we can have a closer look. In the web interface you can select the system then right-click on it and choose 'Send Log Report..'. Most likely the drives need to be zeroed out with dd or some other tool to clear out some low level software raid information on them.
Best,
Steve

Hi Mr Rosh,
I just had a quick look at the logs and it looks like the drives have a previous RAID signature on them so QuantaStor is detecting them as "in use and contains a ddf_raid_member filesystem". There's a good article here on a proceedure for scrubbing the drives which should sort the issue:
https://www.systutorials.com/136711/how-to-clean-raid-signatures-on-linux/
We're looking at improving the format operation in QuantaStor to be able to clear RAID information like this. Thanks for the feedback and let me know if that works out,
Best,
Steve

thanks Steve, a option to perform a format operation, where it clears all previous raid info etc, would be highly appreciated.
