Sorry for the board admins and other members who have read this countless times, as I have also read numerous threads on this issue on the same forum at different points in time. But it appeared that many times people had more data in it already…
I just purchased My Book Live Duo 6tb yesterday and proceeded with setting it up as RAID1. It ships as spanning so I converted it to RAID1. It then automatically proceeded with rebuilding. I had not placed anything in the drive and have not even ventured to look at what was in the drive but I did set up a backup point as recommended by the WD program. The program showed that 3gb out of the 6TB (or now, 3TB after conversion) has been used. Backup file was approx 500mb I believe.
Anyway, so it has been rebuilding since last night and so far reached 11% in around 10 hours. I noticed when the computer was off, the drive LED was green, while when the computer was turned back on in the morning the drive LED turned blue. Do I need to keep the computer on as it rebuilds? What are the blue/green LED indicators? and should it be taking this long the rebuild a new drive which I have not even accessed?
