Hey all, have a WD DUO with 2x WD Red 6TB drives in it. Last week it went offline one of the drives started making making a clicking noise. So I bought a new drive replaced the broken one and ran rebuild through WD Drive Utilities.
It took about 24hrs. Now shows up as RADI 1 as “healthy”. And both drives as “online”.
Ran all three tests under Diagnose and all three show up as “passed”
BUT - I can’t access the files. It doesn’t show up as mapped any more.
I ran Disk management and mapped to D:/ but any time I click on the drive it says I need to format the drive before use, and “the parameter is incorrect”.
Obviously I don’t want to format the drive as I have close to 5TB of files on there.
I followed the instructions exactly, is there anything I can do to access the data again?
P.s. I ran a test of easeUS and it can see there is data on the drive. But don’t want to go through a recovery software, replacing a drive on raid1 shoudl work right?
Would really appreciate any help. Thanks!
