I am using a 2 drive G-RAID setup through USB3.0 on my Windows PC. I used the “G-Technology RAID Configuration Utility” to change the RAID configuration to RAID-1 rather than RAID-0.
I wanted to make sure the RAID configuration was working properly, so after copying some data, I ejected one drive and then the other, and I noticed that indeed there were two copies of the data (great!).
Satisfied that it was working correctly, I made sure both drives were installed again and I copied more data to the array. I noticed only one of the drive’s LED light was blinking when I was writing, which made me concerned that the mirroring was no longer working.
Sure enough, when I shutdown, ejected the drive whose light was blinking, and then started back up, the data was not found on the remaining drive. No matter what I do, these two drives now seem “out of sync” with each other.
How is the RAID-1 rebuild supposed to happen, and how do I get these drives to mirror each other again?
