Total BS right there!

Storage / Re: DLNA on LS420D NAS not working (system error occurred)
« Last post by MiG174 on August 01, 2017, 06:46:12 am »
I have an LS420D NAS. Right now it has one 4TB drive in it. Everything seems to work except the DLNA server. I already flipped DLNA to ON. However, my AVR cannot see it (but it can see other devices just fine). I also have a test DLNA client on my laptop and it cannot see the NAS either.

The DLNA status keeps flipping between Enabled and Not Running. I already assigned one folder to have the DLNA check mark. That folder has only music. When I try to refresh the database I got the error message "a system error occurred. reboot the linkstation and try configuring it again." I tried to Initialize the database and got "No response from NAS". No matter what I try, I cannot get DLNA to work.

My firmware is 1.83. Please help me. Thanks.

There is a suggestion that the developers do not test 420 series devices to work with one disk/JBOD mode, I myself am suffering with 421DE. Try this option, only it is shareware, for Twonky 8.4.1 need license key http://forum.buffalo.nas-central.org/viewtopic.php?f=81&t=44467

Storage / LS220DE Raid rebuild error
« Last post by mtiernan on August 01, 2017, 06:11:01 am »
I have a new LS220DE that I've just set up. Works fine it seems. Updated firmware to latest {LS220DE (LS220DE274) Version 1.66-0.01} without any issues.

Using two 1TB WD Caviar black drives in RAID 1 configuration I've set up a share and performed some read/writes to confirm things are as they seem to be.

To test the process of restoring after a failure, (Would rather do it now then when I've got ~999GB hanging in the balance) I pulled a drive as a simulation of a drive failure.

All works as expected. Up to this point.

Now, following instructions, I put a different drive (same type) in as the replacement. I get all the way to the part where I choose the button "Recover RAID Array", enter the confirmation and after a short pause am presented with an error stating "The parameters for the specified method are invalid."

Anyone else dealt with this? I'm going to rebuild from scratch, and repeat the sequence then pull the primary drive and put it on one of my Linux systems to look for the log to identify what happened. In the mean time, I thought I'd check here.

Hi Davo,

Thanks for your valuable input,  that helps explains why these forums suck.

yes, fully backed up each week (data is not too dynamic). 

This is not the first time I've had issues with these TeraStation NAS devices, I have several and each has issues to some degree.  But I've actually done something better than a full restore, I purchased a new NAS from another manufacturer.

I cannot imagine a scenario where I buy another Buffalo product, nor will I ever recommend it.

Idea Exchange Lounge / Easy and Awesome Way to recover Data in XFS Format
« Last post by sflorman on July 31, 2017, 08:29:32 am »
I am writing this for any one person who has owned a buffalo NAS product and decided to RAID the device inwhich at some point of ownership, the device has failed and you freak out because you dont know how to get your data back.

I have learned this the hard way to be quite honest - but here is the short on this great idea.

When you tell your Buffalo NAS to raid 0 the drives - the data is stored in an XFS Folder inwhich you cannot access via a Windows computer.  If you not Linux savy, like me, this idea is the best, fastest and the most awesome way to get your data back.

First all, let me provide a linkhttp://www.reclaime.com/default.aspx

This amazing software is called Reclaime.  It boasts that is can recover any data stored in XFS.  If you watch the video, the gal is even using a Buffalo Product to demonstrate how you can use Reclaime to retrieve your data. 

I purchased this softare because after wasting 6 hours of trying to retrieve my data I couldn't.  I already knew the data was there, as the trial version of Reclaime already proved it to me. So I then purchased the license agreement, and boom - it started copying my data immediately.  In less that a day (Had almost 2TB of data to retreive) I had all my data back. 

This is TRUELY awesome software for any one who needs to retrieve data stored in a RAID / XFS format.  You know your data is invaluable and often hard to replace.  So the license fee is definately worth it.  Look for coupons while you're at it.

Thanks for reading.

Storage / array2 degraded on TS4400D
« Last post by getlucky on July 31, 2017, 07:12:22 am »
Hi,

I have this issue in which the terastation tells me that array2 is degraded. However both drives appear as "normal" in the Drives section. I cannot rebuild the array. Searching around the internet leads me down the path of the HDDs being at fault. However I know the drives were bought new (WD 2TB Reds x2) to replace two which developed a fault (this was the last IT guy, I just took over when he left as a volunteer). The Check Disk runs without any issues either on both of the drives.
I've tried dismounting the drives and reinserting them a bit later, using the function key 3sec press for rebuilding the array once the message on the LCD popped up about detecting the new drives. But it always comes up as degraded.

I've set up the email notification but that doesn't tell me much that I don't already know.  I'll post some screenshots of what I see. Any ideas?

PS. there is a firmware update on it but I'm not going to do this until I have backed up the current data on it. http://imgur.com/a/nqjhu

Most likely the problem in the router, connect NAS to PC/Laptop via Ethernet cable and search in NAS Navigator.
