I tried to shut down my My Book Live Duo this morning and am now stuck:
drive won’t shut down after repeated attempts via the WD quickview shortcut
drive is still mounted and files visible in Finder
NOT able to access dashboard
light on drive blinking for the last couple of hours
Raid status and S/N show in Quickview, but Temperature and Space available show as “unknown”
Since I can neither shut down the drive, nor get into the dashboard, I’m stuck. Is there an alternative to unplugging the drive while the light is blinking, thus risking all my data?
Mac OSX 10.8.2
My Book Live Duo 4TB, RAID 1
Thanks for any advice!
