Dear Western Digital Support,
I have just finished setting up each of the "project areas" using the included WD PiDrive Foundation Edition - English software and 375gb USB drive with RPi3 upon the last reboot there was a boot failure due to file system corruption on the WD PiDrive media. This failure resulted in just "4 RASPBERRY IMAGES" being displayed no matter with area was selected. The product that I was working with is the:
WD PiDrive Compute Centre
I am assuming that the Lightning Bolt icon, that I thought was a Temp icon indicated that the standard cable/power adapter that was included with my kit, caused this "brown out" and thus the corruption...
There was issue with file system corruption (possibly each /boot) when SD "project area" selection was chosen and :
Projects Spaces replaces the need for multiple SD cards to manage different projects for your Raspberry Pi. A “Project Space” is a vanilla install of Raspbian Jessie Lite that can be used to test code or create different projects in their own isolated environments. This prevents elements of your separate projects to conflict with each other across Project Spaces. Each space has its own /boot and /root partition......
I do not know if there is an issue with the actual PiDrive itself or with the SD boot selection:
Since I can not access the WD PiDrive using a standard Raspian SD boot media, I am unable to determine which /boot files are corrupted....none of the separate Project areas will successfully boot.
I am attempting to reinitialize and recreate each "Project area" again...by using recovery boot as none of the previously created sym links function.... only the 4 Raspberries at top of screen once the OS is selected....a waste of a week of customization... too bad we can't select the OS for each Project Space...I wanted to Multi-boot into a few different OS's that I've not used since 2014...
I have also noticed that over 300gb of disk space is unusable now as well, because this Foundation Edition is preconfigured to create 2 x 8gb, 2 x 16gb, and 1 x32gb project space, with another primary for Raspbian that's ?.....
so How can I tell if my USB power cable is wrong resistance and that there isnt further damage to the 375gb USB drive
