My Book Live Duo 6Tb Total Rebuild from New Drives


I have recently obtained a My Book Live Duo (6Tb Version) without drives and have purchased 2x 3Tb WD Green’s for it, obviously these are un-formatted without any data on them and I am finding it a task to find a way to rebuild it, can someone assist me with step by step instructions or is it possible to send the unit to WD for them to sort it for me?

Many thanks


A Drive-less My Book Live Duo is a brick. The operating system for the MBLD is not on flash or anything internal – it’s on the drives that you don’t have.

Look in the form for the De-brick instructions – they might be useful. But don’t get confused with the single-drive My Book Live – that’s a different process.
