Author Topic: Raid1: Formatted Volume_2 while replacing disk 1 in Volume_1: Help!  (Read 2018 times)

I had a degraded disk 1 in volume_1. I run a 4 disk configuration with two volumes with Raid-1 each. I just got the new disk and inserted it and rebooted. The Web interface asked me to format the disk, so I said OK. Big Mistake!
In the Web interface I can see the volume_1 syncing. It's not accessible yet, it will take another 8 hours or so.
But I can see the volume_2 partition mapped to my PC, and it's Empty! There is one file ".systemfile" and nothing else. It appears to be formatted!
This is so much more annoying since I just copied tons of video files there and spent  a lot of time re-organizing it. It was working fine before the install.
Any clues on how to recover voulum_2 (with Disk 3 and 4) if Disk 1 was replaced and formated? Was that second volume really formated? or is there something else wrong in the configuration?

Any help appreciated.
