We just got back from vacation and after turning back on NAS I get beeps! Not what you want to hear when powering on after a week of having the server off.
So new hard drive is ordered and I’m $200 dollars poorer, but all my digital files will be a little safer in a few days. Disk 1 is the drive that went out and it was the first one installed of course so, makes sense I guess. The best part is because of RAID 5 nothing was lost and the system continues to run.
With Prime from Amazon, It will be back up Monday night. I’m currently doing a secure erase on the bad drive. Then I’ll take it out and dust the whole enclosure while throwing out the old drive. #ITdad
