Storage / Replacement drive for LinkStation Duo NAS (LS-WXL/R1)
« Last post by logon2 on Today at 11:40:38 am »
One of the drives has failed in my LinkStation Duo NAS (LS-WXL/R1), containing 2 HDDs, configured for RAID 1.

Are there recommendations for the type of replacement drive? Does the speed matter?

The current capacity shows as 931.5 GB; I think the drives are 1TB.

As disk prices keep falling, Can I replace it with a new HDD of higher capacity? I suspect that the capacity of the NAS will not change at this point.

If I later replace the smaller drive with one with the higher capacity, can I then reconfigure the NAS to the higher capacity?

Thank you!
mjrgroup: when you said StepTree, did you mean TreeSize Free?   StepTree is a wireframe tool.

Very odd. I've used TreeSize forever and found it accurate, but this time is says I have over 52 terabytes?  That's magical for a 4 TB LinkStation.

I just f**** up everything in this NAS ... It took me several hours to flash this NAS and update the firmware + figure it out what it still doesnt work.
Don't know what I did, but now I manage to enter it again.
Please help me bring back Disk 1 (new disk):

A HDD can last 1 day or 20 years, it's impossible to say.

Always make sure you have a backup.

The Linkstation doesn't know if it is connected to the WLAN or LAN, or directly connected. If the TM backup works for the LAN but not WLAN then the issue is more than likely on either the WLAN card in the MAC or the network itself.

Changing the Linkstation probably won't help to be honest.

Click "Array1" under the RAID array options, not the disk options then see if you have the option to rebuild.

I'm working with a four drive TeraStation, setup with a Raid 10 array.  Drives 1 and 4 both failed on me.  I've put in two new drives (same make and model), but the device is not giving me the option to rebuild.  I've attached a screen shoot.  Disk 1 says "error" but give me no other details.  Disk 4 says "Spare Disk".   
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have a Ubiquiti AP LR wifi access point ( attached to the D-Link switch. I just installed and checked their "Controller" software and there are no settings limiting wifi use that I can find.

I don't have any third party firewall software.

Could this be caused by a change that Apple introduced in Sierra?

I'm on the brink of returning the device and trying a different brand to see what that does.

Just so nobody else finds this thread lacking info or progress updates (times etc) and needs any help in this same situation.

I have finally sorted my 4tb LS-WTGL that was in Emergency mode. After hours of waiting for the updater/Nas to finish updating i decided to try different methods. AND finally i had some success. JUST SO YOU KNOW THIS WAY I HAD TO SACRAFICE MY DATA BUT AT LEAST I NOW HAVE A WORKING NAS, WHEN STUCK IN EM MODE I HAD NONE!!!!

Download the file previously posted by davo (Thanks again)

Once downloaded and extracted, open LSUpdater config file (.ini) in notepad.

This is a exact copy of my settings that worked perfect for me, copy and paste them or edit the ini as needed.

Code: [Select]
Title = BUFFALO LS-WTGL/R1-V3 Updater Ver.3.09
WaitReboot = 999
WaitFormat = 500

ProductID = 0x00003004
Name = LS-WTGL/R1-V3

VersionCheck = 0
NoFormatting = 0


Now run the LSUpdater.exe, right click on top window bar the and select debug options.

These are my settings:

Now Update, it took my 4tb Nas, around 15 mins to complete update and then shut down. After turning back on  around 7-10 mins of the Amber "!" light. Once the power led has stopped flashing your Nas should be shown in navigator as ok now.

Right click go to setting that should open up your Nas control panel. (mine was reset after my update back to japanese).

Login with:

User: admin
Pass: password

Change the language to yours and enjoy setting up your NAS again.

I hope this helps someone because i spent too long trying to figure this out on my device.
