I recently was given one off my friend as it wasnt working and said if I fix it I can keep it as he has a new one.
I followed the format process using the mybook format, but I dont get the last part…
7) Put the disk back within the Mybook
8) Boot, the disk will automatically resize the data partition, then reboot
9) at boot, the Mybook will format the drive, this operation can be fvery long, please be patient. (2-3 hours)
you can connect using ssh (root/root) and launch the following command
ps -ef|grep mkfs
if the following line is displayed, then the process is not finished…
/sbin/mkfs.ext3 -j /dev/md4
10 ) when the process is finished, you have access to your public folder and there is a MybookFormat.log file in it .
check this log file for any errors…
Do not copy any data on your disk until you have checked the MybookFormat.log file
Do I just put the harddrive back inside the case then turn it on and just leave it on for 2/3 hours?
If yes, how do I know it has was worked
