I recently received the message that the hard drive in bay “A” went bad on my My Studio II (hooked up to Mac running OS 10.6). I ordered a new 1TB drive and replaced it. The LED lights indicated that the RAID 1 was being rebult (LED’s running up the enclosure). The following day, I plugged it back into my Mac and it shows that the drive in bay “A”, the one I just replaced, is bad. It just says “Failed” on the Drive Manager, and does not show any other information about the drive.
My limited techinical knowledge would point me to believe that one of four things is going on.
The new hard drive is bad. Would it have even attempted to rebuild the RAID if it was?
The Enclosure is bad. Again, would it have rebuilt the RAID if the enclosure had issues?
I didn’t install the drive correctly. This was my first replacement drive on this, so this is definately a possiblity
Bad software incorrectly identifying the drive as bad. I also looked at the drive in Disk Utility in OSX, and it also stated that there was only 1TB, not the 2TB there should be.
Does anyone have any help to guide me to try to figure this out? I searched a bit for similar problems, but came up with none.
