Sharespace 4TB Raid-5 volume degraded


I have a WD Sharespace 4TB NAS with 4 x 1TB in RAID-5 with WD Green Hard Disks.
Recently i saw a blinking orange led. I’ve logged in web interface and went to**

**disk manager.There I can see all 4 disks in Good Status.HDD4 reports Unassigned.
Next to it  are  2 options 1. Safely remove disk 2. Clean Disk

Should I proceed with one of these options to rebuid the array or should I do it through ssh with mdadm?

Thank you**

yes you can try to clean the disk…

Be careful when doing ssh… if you are familiar with the process then it will be up to you

ok i’ve backed up everything and cleaned the disk.

Now disk shows as “new”.Then i go to volumes and raid management 

and i have an option to “add”.When i press it it shows only this disk in “span”

configuration.I think it is trying to create a new volume on this one only.Should i

choose that or “modify” current raid5 volume and press “submit”?

On this one it says that “This process will erase all data in the volume!” and i don’t 

want that! I just want to add this new drive to the volume and rebuild it without loosing the data.

Is that possible?

Thank you


Ok I just rebooted the device and now it shows status “recovering” without doing anything let’s see what will happen…
