drive check time?
« on: October 30, 2018, 09:52:50 am »
How long should a drive check take. My 4 drive 4tb raid 5  linkstation has been running for almost 3 days now. When can I expect it to be useable again? Is it safe to power it off and see if it restarts normally?

The status shows up as blank. No time remaining indication whatsoever . When I go to the management page progress just shows a spinning ball Checking drive...
No features can be changed until the drive has been completely checked. Also, file sharing is not available.

After starting on day 5 I pulled the plug on the unit and then powered it back up. The array is back and fine. Maybe the 1.74 firmware is buggy?
