upgrading/replacing hard drive LS-WVLC28
« on: November 30, 2018, 11:17:46 am »
One of my 3TB seagate drives failed so I purchased a 4TB replacement drive but the buffalo will not format it. The format option is greyed out. My assumption that as long as I replaced the failed drive with a 3TB or bigger that it would work properly. Any ideas??  Feel free to email me direct.

Do you have a RAID setup? If so what mode?
PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / Recovery files  LSRecovery.exe file.

Raid array 1 , just one drive copying the other. I have 1 3TB hd and am using a new 4TB hd to start upgrading my drive storage so that if and when the 3TB fails, I will replace that one with a 4tb drive also.

"RAID Array 1" is the name of the array, not the RAID mode, can you still access the data?

Yes, I can on the remaining drive. One drive was mirroring the other.

Never mind, I found the issue, I had to rebuild the array with the new hard drive. That seemed to take care of the problem.
