TS1200D0802 Emergency Mode
« on: October 13, 2019, 05:37:42 pm »
I have a TS1200D0802 where both drives seem to be bad/corrupt.  After replacing both drives with brand new drives, I can hear them spin up, but the NAS is in Emergency Mode.  Both NAS Navigator 2 and the TS Firmware Updater utility see the device on the network and I've tried re-initalizing the entire unit with a new firmware by adding the following lines to the tsupdater.ini file:

[Flags]
VersionCheck = 0
NoFormatting = 0

[SpecialFlags]
Debug = 1

I get a message "Partition not detected, the target will be formatted" and I select "yes" to continue, but then I receive the message "Format Failed.  Update Aborted". 

Granted, the instructions I found to modify the ini file seemed to be for a LinkStation, not a TeraSTation, but I couldn't find a recovery procedure for the TS series.

Anyone have any advice?  I'm not attempting to recover any data, I just want to start over with these fresh drives and the latest firmware.  I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!

Did you enable any debug options when you tried? It should work if you enable all except update boot.

It seems the ini flag I set doesnít enable the debug options in the firmware tool GUI.  Maybe because Iím using the LS instructions on a TS model?

what happens if you click on the top-left corner of the tsupdater window?
