I'm in the process of writing everything up and making the process as simple and reliable as possible. I setup a GitHub page to house everything, feel free to give it a try:
Thanks for putting this together. I need to rebuild my NAS (LS441D) and was hoping to find something exactly like this. I'll be working on it late next week, after I get my new drives.
Solved Storage Threads / Issues with TeraStation 3000 Series TS3400D0804
« Last post by kjricso on January 14, 2021, 12:17:12 pm »
I got this unit and I had the hardest time resetting it. I got that all done and updated the firmware. Now when I go to the devices webpage it's just a blank page. I have tried clearing cache, different browsers, different os Mac/PC, and different devices. Same result. The NAS Navigator can see it but that doesn't help me to access it.

I realise this is a very old post, but how did you get the 1tb drive in and working? What did the nice tech tell you? Just throw the tb drive in, and it works?
Storage / LS441E - Backup Multiple Shared Folders to USB Disk
« Last post by DbitInfo on January 12, 2021, 10:09:36 am »
I have about 9 root shared folders on my NAS. When I set the device to backup multiple of these folders to an external USB drive it overwrites the previous backed up folder each time a new operation starts. Is there a process for backing up multiple root folders? Is this not possible?

If it is not, do I need to move all my shares into a single root folder, and if so, will this be a copy operation that may cause me to run out of space? Is there any 'cut' function that might be a workaround?

I'm really super bummed that there's not an easy logical way to backup multiple folders to a USB drive, but perhaps I'm missing something?

Good to hear from you!

I can think of a few reasons why this might be happening, all of which depend on how your disks/partitions are laid out. I believe the best way to move forward would be for you to open an issue on my github page and post a screen shot of the installer partitioning menu so i can take a look at it.

Talk to you soon!

Storage / Debian on TS-XL - Stuck at partitioning
« Last post by poadb on January 12, 2021, 04:14:35 am »

Like many of you, I'm trying to breathe new life into an old TeraStation.

I'm going through the Installer process via SSH, but I can't get any further after I've set the /boot, / and /home.
I watched the video from Novaspirit Tech, but he's only using 1 disk. My TS-XL has 4.

I've tried to follow a link provided by 1000001101000 to the SoftwareRaidRoot ( but don't really understand it, tbh, and how it relates to my setup and the step that I am at.

I keep getting a screen that says:

Code: [Select]
The attempt to mount a file system with type swap in SCSI1 (0,0,0),  │
    │ partition #5 (sda) at none failed.                                   │
    │                                                                      │
    │ You may resume partitioning from the partitioning menu.              │
    │                                                                      │
    │ Do you want to resume partitioning?

Can I ask for a little help please getting past the partitioning stage?
