I am using Raid 1. I have run the Short & Long tests, and Drive A failed both times. So can I simply buy a new Green WD30EZRX drive, swap out the A drive and the MBLD will configure itself?
Yes, the unit should rebuild the RAID. Make sure to get the same line of product.
I am facing a similar problem, one of my drives failed so I purchased a new one to replace it. It has been almost 24 hours but nothing is happening, the light keeps blinking orange. Could this be because my original drives were green and I bought a red one? Are they not the same?
My replacement drive was the same model as the drive that went bad. The
Raid did update and all is well.
Thank you! Will just wait a little longer then

again, the cost did not justify the expense. I agree WD should have the
drives to support this availalble, but I also understand, that it is buyer
