I had a drive failure today. The lights blinked green/yellow for awhile while it was shuffling data and when it went green, I replaced the drive with the red light. I left it sit for a few hours and it stayed red. I went into Dashboard and powered down the 5N and powered it back on. The power light blinks green and the blue lights fill up, then all of the lights turn off and the power light goes solid yellow and has sat there for hours. The fan is running and the drives are spinning but I don’t hear any disk activity. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The last time a drive died in this unit, I had to remove the disk pack and reinstall the firmware, then replace the disk pack. This is becoming rather tedious, especially if I have to do it again. Setting up Crashplan is becoming common knowledge to me.
Thanks for the help in advance! I also logged a ticket with support.
edit: just as a posted this, the power light started flashing green and the activity light is solid and I can hear disk activity but all the drive lights are still off. I just pray my data is still there.
edit2: it showed up in dashboard but power light is still blinking green and activity light is solid. All drive lights still off. I grabbed a diagnostic for good measure.
