So I had my R6 set up as follows:
- PD1 - RAID 5 (LD 0)
- PD2 - RAID 5 (LD 0)
- PD3 - RAID 5 (LD 0)
- PD4 - RAID 0 (LD 1)
- PD5 - RAID 0 (LD 2)
- PD6 - SPARE
Running latest divers, utility and firmware via MacBook Pro/27" Thunderbolt Screen, High Sierra (10.13.5)
System started going super slow and PD 4 started having minor errors (timeout). Saw somewhere that by shutting system down and then removing faulty drive would speed up system. Which it did. Unfortunatly PD 5/LD 3 was is now listed as Offline too?
Shut system down and replaced PD 4. On start up 'Major error on LD 1 & 2. "Logical drive has been placed offline. Possible Data Loss.
Now in PD List, all green lights on:
- PD1 - Arry0 No.0
- PD2 - Arry0 No.1
- PD3 - Arry0 No.2
- PD4 - PassThru
- PD5 - Arry0 No.4
- PD6 - Arry0 No.3
What should I do?
- PD 6 to revert back to being a spare.
- PD 5 to retreve data
- Use PD 6 to build a replica of PD 4.
- Install a new drive to replace faulty PD 4.
Thank you for your help.
