DEC 2020, Gen 2 had a red light on DD telling me drive failed. Replaced with 4TB of exactly the same sort. DD recognised it and began rebuilding. Computer went to sleep and now the lights are still flashing green/orange but there’s not a peep from the machine and it’s not showing on DD anymore.
Looks like I’ve lost everything and to say I’m fairly disappointed would be a mild thing.
Original drive WD Caviar greenpower 1Tb
Replaced with same except 4TB
Still connected and providing me only with a mundane strobe effect.
As lights are flashing, I’m concerned that whatever I have on it might be lost if I unplug it and try once more. If anyone has any ideas, I’d be grateful; otherwise I might use it as target practice.
