DNS320L Can no longer see drive?
« on: May 25, 2018, 03:01:02 PM »

Hi,

My NAS has 1x 2TB drive in it. For whatever reason, the NAS thinks there is no volume in it. Login to sharecentre and it says no volumes found.

I took the drive out, booted the Ubuntu Live flash drive on my PC and it can read all the contents of the drive fine.
I borrowed a 1 TB hard drive, put that in the NAS and it recognised the drive fine (in sharecentre).

I have fun plug on the drive etc, could this have caused the issue? I renamed the ffp folder, funplug file etc, no difference.

Any thoughts on what could have gone wrong or how I might be able to fix it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I forgot to mention, the power and drive LEDs are solid blue and i'm running the latest firmware.

I thought they said that in later versions of FW that FunPlug wasn't supported anymore.

I would try to remove that plug in then see what happens.

Thanks, It stopped working before I upgraded the firmware. I upgraded the firmware after that.

As for uninstalling it, I need to figure out how to do that! Thanks. I thought renaming it might do it.

No good so far.

The drive is fine, can read it in linux. No idea where to go next!

Since you can read it in Linux backup your data to another drive (a standard 2TB mounted via a SATA/USB adapter should do it). 

With your data backed up you can then use the disk manufacturers disk tools to wipe the disk and give it a new MBR.  It should then become visible in the DNS320L.  With it visible set it up as a new formatted drive - this will restore the software RAID information on the disk.

It is then easy to restore you data to the NAS and use that spare drive for future backups.

Any data that you don't have at least two copies of is not backed up!
