How to format each drive indidually on Lacie 5Big Network 2 - Make each drive it's own disk

Hello,

I have a Lacie 5Big Network 2 array, with 5 3TB drives.  I have formatted the drives through the web interface (erased the RAID 5), but when I try to format the volume, it only gives options to build a RAID 0, 5, or 6.
I would like to make each drive it's own disk and volume, but it doesn note seem possible through the web interface.  Is it possible to configure each drive to be it's own disk and volume?  Maybe through telnet?

Thank you.  Let me know if you need further information.

You SHOULD be able to configure for RAID 0 giving you max drive space

BUT WHY would you buy such a great device and then lose ALL of your protection?

I want to be able to remove the drives indivudally so I can have offsite backups.  Our office is kinda small.
No can do, sorry.
But if its a kinda small office, why need 15TB of storage! :P

I was looking to use drives instead of tape for offsite backup.

Appreciate the help!
