My EX4100 has one disc that is spinning continuously. That’s disc’s blue LED is blinking and I can hear the sound of drive access (so it isn’t just an LED issue) 100% of the time. The NAS remains responsive on wdmycloud.com but there are long delays when trying to connect to the dashboard on my LAN.
This may be unrelated, but the graphic on the dashboard home screen is wrong about the types of content on the NAS. It shows over 5 TB of movies, but there are hardly any; 5 TB of photos, but there are < TB and 0 TB of other, but that should be the bulk of what I have.
Any thoughts on what it’s doing?
With no external demands, the CPU fluctuates between about 4% and 19%, and the processes using that are:
- system daemon
Memory is being used mostly by:
It is setup with Vol 1 as RAID1 on discs 1 & 2. Then Vol 2 is JBOD on disc 3 and the target of a daily internal backup of the Vol 1. Vol 3 is JBOD on disc 4 and the target of a weekly internal backup of Vol 1.
I tested whether it was a problem with the disc 3 by simply removing it. Then disc 4 spun continuously.
Cloud Access is ON, DLNA Server and Itunes are both OFF.
Any help is appreciated!
