Greetings. I have a ShareSpace WDA4NC40000 that has performed flawlessly for many years. This model has 4 x 1 TB disks. Last week I was working on the electrical panel, and power was cut off to the unit and restored likely too quickly. I can now see that the 4 discs themselves read “good”, yet I can’t access them. From reading about this condition, it appears that the chassis itself is wrecked.
There is a WDA4NC80000 unit for sale here. This model comes shipped with 4 x 2 TB disks. Could I purchase the WDA4NC80000 and install my 4 x 1 TB disks and boot it up successfully, or does it require the 2TB disks?
Secondly, assuming the 1 TB disks will work, I had the WDA4NC40000 configured for RAID5. Do I need to do anything else to the WDA4NC80000 before booting it up after installing my disks?
