Hi! I have a blank array so i don't mind losing data, so i would like to know how i do to change FS on drives, currently it's XFS, but i would like it to be BTRFS, i've already changed it in the defaults, but the format button doesn't appear anymore.

Thank you for your help,

you need to created a new config under Tools

then assigned the drives to the slots and and start and it will ask you to format the drives.


BUT before that happens you will need unassigned devices plug in.

Once you do the new config all of the disk will appear under unassigned and you need to delete the partition on all of the disks then start the array to format it.
