I have a new 8 TB My Book Duo and am configuring it to RAID1. It has been running for over 12 hours. The status light is slowly blinking white (standby) and the WD Drive Utilities status says it’s configuring, with the moving green bar and a warning not to close the window. But there’s no progress indicator so I can’t tell if it’s really working or stuck.
The user guide is pretty useless - it doesn’t say how long to expect (or even warn that it will take a long time) and it says I should see a fast flashing white or steady red when rebuilding but doesn’t say what to expect from the light when configuring to RAID1.
Do I just wait? How long? It sure seems like the configuration time should be predictable as it doesn’t need to copy or preserve data, which can change the time for a rebuild.
