Hello and sorry if this has already found it’s way into a topic.
I have the WD My Cloud Mirror 2tb version. Both drives apparently failed and I now have 2 new WD Red 2tb drives. What do I need to do to prepare them for installing into the enclosure.
To be clear, the old drives are unusable, and sadly out of warranty, so I am starting with brand new drives. I installed them into the enclosure but I get the never ending: “Power was lost from the system. Performing file system consistency check. Please wait.”
I have inserted both drives into the enclosure, but have 2 red lights on the drives and blue for system. Cannot access dashboard.
I can connect the drives directly to my laptop so if I need to partition or add any firmware prior to installing please let me know.
I want to turn the device into a Plex server for movies and music.
I appreciate any help you can give me.
