Storage / Re: Reformat External Drive?

Windows has a way to completely clear a drive. You have to use the diskpart command line utility.

The title says Windows 7 but it works in 8 and 10 as well.

Storage / Buffalo LS421DE LinkStation Stopped sending e-mail
« Last post by slwelch33 on May 11, 2018, 01:48:55 pm »
I have a Buffalo LS421DE LinkStation unit (1 of 3) that was fine until a couple of weeks ago.
It suddenly stopped sending e-mail status reports to me:
 I have my e-mail address entered into the "Recipient(s)" area correctly.
 I have the SMTP Server Address entered correctly (mail.twc.com)
 I have the SMTP Port entered correctly (587)
 I have the Authentication Type entered correctly (LOGIN (SMTP-AUTH)
 I also have the Password entered.
This LinkStation is set up identically as the other 2 LS421DEs as well as 3 LS441DEs.
I have the reports: HDD status report; Fan error; Disk error selected, but never get any reports
I navigate to the Email Notification Settings and click on "Send Test Email":
 It returns the status "Job completed: Send test email notification" but I never get any e-mail from it.
I have "rebooted" the LinkStation several times, shut it down and left it off for several days, restarted it, but nothing seems to work.
Is there any step/procedure you can recommend to get this unit sending the appropriate e-mails.
BTW, the Firmware Version is 1.84-0.01
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Steve

I get you.  But conceptually that is what I need to do to have a good back-up?

Storage / Reformat External Drive?
« Last post by Hotkey on May 11, 2018, 12:37:53 pm »
I have a Buffalo Ext HD - was used as an encrypted Truecrypt Ext HD.  No longer needs to be and files are also not needed.  I tried to use Disk Management Util in Windows 10 to remove the 2 volumes listed in the drive but only the larger can be removed. The smaller EFI SYstem partition of 200 MB cannot be acted upon. The action menu lists Delete and others but nothing happens.

So does Buffalo (or some other creator) have a utility that can either remove the volume or change its attributes somehow so that it can be?

Thanks for any help!

Like something like this that I can plug into my NAS and have it back-up weekly to it?

Wireless / Re: Buffalo WZR-HP-G450H Post 20025 Firmware Solution
« Last post by Jacobi on May 11, 2018, 09:03:24 am »
Actually, I'd still prefer a "20025e" (with just the VU#973527 fix for dnsmasq and the fix for "krack") build over the latestgreatestnewest DD-WRT for the WZR-HP-G450H, as the 20025 was perfect regarding the feature set and with less than 15 MiB was more adequate in size as the current 30357 which seems to be hard to the limit. I have the suspicion that the SQUASHFS error messages point to the fact that the running system "needs room" and the router is not able to provide it any more due to the "close match".
Is it still possible to apply fixes to the 20025 level of the DD-WRT firmware?

I get you.  So, one bad sector on the one drive is really not that bad anyhow?  I am replacing it but just asking. 

What would constitute a good back-up?  Buy a USB drive that plugs into the NAS and backs up weekly?  Just want to make sure I employ the right strategy.

Uninstall the program and restart the pc and again install the program and then again restart your pc. Hope this will work

Wireless / Re: Buffalo WZR-HP-G450H Post 20025 Firmware Solution
« Last post by Jacobi on May 11, 2018, 05:25:01 am »
I also purchased the WZR-HP-G450H 5 years ago, DD-WRT was preinstalled and so far I've been very content with the device. However, since November 2017 I had to deactivate dnsmasq as much as possible due to VU#973527. Now I saw the freshly uploaded Firmware build 30357 on the Buffalo FTP server, including the comment on the fix for the dnsmasq vulnerability.
I performed a Firmware-Upgrade last week and pressed on the "proceed" button of the Web-Page that stated that the Firmware-Upgrade on my router completed successfully.
However, eversince it is very difficult to make the router start. I mostly see the "DIAG'-LED being alight constantly. After about 10-20 power cycles, sometimes waiting hours between power-cycles the router booted and I was able to access the Web-Server on the usual IP.
But the new firmware is not as stable as the previous one, and services are dropped after some time. For example I used the Free-Radius daemon on the router, but that daemon consumed always 100% PU time and my wireless devices were not able to log in any more.
And later, I saw messages like this in /var/log/messages:

[...]

There are tons of those lines, and after some time the radius daemon didn't start any more at all:

I've seen you mentioned that "magic barrier" of 26 MiB for a maximum size for a Firmware to apply on the WZR-HP-G450H. But
the curent build as downloaded from the Buffalo FTP-Server is below that barrier:

25M     Downloads/wzrhpg450h-pro-r30357/wzrhpg450h-pro-r30357.enc

Is someone else here in the Forum who "collected" some experience with this Firmware-Level on the WZR-HP-G450H? And is there a way to get to the boot-console of the router without the need to open the case and looking for the RX/TX connectors for a serial line (I'd like to know why I needed so many boot attempts)?
