I’ve had my G-Studio 4 bay drive since February 2018 and loved it. I have it set up as a RAID 5.
This afternoon i got a warning on my G-Studio saying “PSU 5V power is out of the threshold range”, Then the G symbol went red and all the hard drives went offline saying “Physical disk is marked as DEAD due to forced offline state”.
I thought something horrible happened and i lost all my files. I did not see WD Staff member Rydia’s solution to go into the terminal and force online the hard drives before I did the following…
…I thought I could maybe reformat one drive and if I stuck it back in it would force the system to repair itself? Since it’s a RAID 5. I don’t know, i panicked.
Well that solution did not work for many obvious reasons. So AFTER i saw Rydia’s solution, i was able to get all the offline drives online. However my problem is that my logical drive won’t open and says “Mount disk3 fail: This disk does not have any mounted volume”.
How do I solve this? Have I screwed it up too much now? Is there a way I can have the other 3 drives rebuild the 4th one that I so dumbingly reformated?
I will be calling the support line tomorrow as well but I’m hoping you see this Rydia since you seem to have answers.
