Disk Error - Bad Sectors
« on: April 05, 2018, 08:30:37 pm »
I'm getting the following error on my Buffalo LinkStation:

DISK Error Notification

HDD error occurred
Disk(s) the error occurred:"Disk 2"

(sdb) READ sector:2002952 count:29
Disk writing error
Continuous backup is recommended.

 LinkStationName: LS-WVLA5B (LS-WVL)
 Time: 2018/04/04 18:16:15
 Setting Screen:

I've completely backed up my hard drive to another external drive and now want to recover the raid array. 
Can I just try to rebuild the raid array and see if it fixes the bad sectors or do I need to buy a new drive and then rebuild it?  I'm pretty sure this was caused by a power failure so I doubt it is a failed drive.
