LS420D0402 - Array1 degraded ... HELP!
« on: August 14, 2019, 11:55:51 am »
Hello, all.

I'm at a crossroads, and no idea where to go from where I am.

1) LinkStation LS420D amber alert, blinking...
2) Launched NAS Navigator
---alert: "...Raid array is in degraded mode.."  and/or "...too many bad sectors; disk 2..."
3) Turned off NAS, then unplugged all cables
4) Replaced disk 2 with new disk with equal specs
5) Connected all cables, then turned on NAS

Network cannot find NAS, and Array1 is degraded.

Running 'Disk check' or 'Format disk' for Array1 warns not to if " set as a backup device." It appears that either of these options will delete content on disk. Yikes.
So, what now?
Screen caps might help in figuring out what step(s) I should take that I not loose files & folders.

Many thanks for your help.
