I have a Sentinel dx4000 box with 4 drives each 2TB setup as RAID 5. About 4 days ago, one of the drives failed so I started copying my files to another NAS. During the copying process, I saw another error on the LCD screen - something like 0xd9 and the process stopped. So, I started restoration using the WD software (had the DVD, Phew!). Now, this process started for the past 3 days and still going. All I can see on the LCD screen is “Initializing OK searching …”. I am not sure how long I should expect this process to go and actually what is it doing? recreating the RAID 5? Anyone had similar experience so I can learn from?
How much price tag can you put on all your family and kids video and pictures for some years!! (plus all other data etc.)
