This procedure describes the steps required to restore a RAID-1 following a HDD failure on the DNS-320/321/323/325 Series ShareCenter.

If a RAID-1 drive has failed, the DNS-320/321/323/325 Series ShareCenter will display the HDD LED light, of the corresponding drive, in Amber and you will receive an email from the DNS-320/321/323/325 stating a drive has failed if this option has been configured. If this happens, follow these steps to restore the RAID-1 settings:

  • Power down the ShareCenter
  • Remove the failed drive from the ShareCenter
  • Insert the new drive into the ShareCenter
  • The new drive Should be blank with no partition on the drive The drive may still be detected and prompt to format if formatted in NTFS
  • Power on the ShareCenter
  • After a minute log into the ShareCenter web interface
  • You will be prompt to format and resync on entry, click OK
  • Formatting a hard drive will erase the data stored on the hard drive. Please backup important data before formatting a hard drive
  • This action will format the replaced drive only and sync the two hard drives in RAID-1
  • Wait for format and resync to complete. The ShareCenter is now ready for use
