Definitions of drive light indicators??

Postby SwartHack » December 11th, 2017, 6:08 pm

Can someone please point me to where there are "real" instructions for this unit.
Like ones that describe the different drive light flashings, what they mean and what you can/should do.
As far as recovery there is little guidance, so I turn to the forum for help...

I have a RAID 1+0 configured.The 1 and 3 drive lights are continuously flashing.
The drive is still up but everything is really slow, and if I open any disk management tool, it freezes up.
I assume this means that either the 0 or 1 is down?!

This happened to me before right after I got the rig about 8 months ago, and was using a mix of drives.
I upgraded all my disks and hoped to be able to replace the two failing disks, have the unit recover, then replace the other two, and the unit would recover!? right?
I ended up having to rebuild...

Now I am faced with the same circumstances, but little hope.

When somethings goes down, either a drive or some partitioning errors, what do you do?
Just plug in a new disk? I tried that before with no luck.

Also thinking RAID5 may be a better solution?

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

might be a problem with one of the drives
get hard disk sentinel (there is a free trial)
check the SMART Info and health % on your drives
