Raid issues-or not ?
Hello folks, I have owned a corza for 2 years now and have gotten through most of the issues but trolling the forum here so thanks to all.
My system is setup where I have 3x 1.5TB Samsung HD154UI Drives (which are great by the way) and what I do is rotate one out every month or so to the safety deposit box as insurance. (for $70 a drive it is well worth it)
What has occured on my most recent rotation/raid rebuild is that I have been having some issues.
I have 2 questions.
1) When removing a drive, should I be removing the lower bay or upper bay unit ?
2) in my case, after I rebuilt it. I had red lights and no data. Thank G-d I had my backup and installed that and copied the data but now I have 2 drives in the box and one shows has a format of ext3 while the other shows none. The red light on the box is still on. yet after I checked each drive individually all the data is there and upated and the raid seems to be working fine...HELP
here is the status of the window showing none on the format
Device Name Type Mount Point Status Encrypt:Password/Format Type/Format Scandisk Umount Health
/dev/hdb ext3 raid used encrypt
/dev/hda none raid used encrypt
here is the status showing everything is fine.
Raid level: RAID 1
File system: EXT3
Raid Size: 1374 GB
Raid Used: 788635 MB
Raid system is normal operation.
Can any care to comment if this is about to fail and is there something I should do, or simply leave it as is ???
Thank you for your help
