    sorry if this is covered, i cant find it.
    i was running freenas 8 on my crappy noisy computer with 2 disks on it, running fine.
    i have reinstalled freenas 8 on another (quieter) computer, and i cant seem to figure out how to add the 2 disks to freenas without formatting them

    many thanks

    Use Storage/Autoimport Volume, or if that doesn't find them then use Import Volume and point it in the right direction.
