Last week Drive 2 (Array0 No.1) on my R6 failed/dead. I dont have any drives set as spare, using all 6 in RAID5 (10TB)

I just installed a replacment drive but when I attempt to rebuild 'Array0 Seq No1 : 2 TB' not Target Physical Drive is available. I am, instead,  given the following message "There is no data to submit".

I have checked the Pysical Drive List and slot 2 is not in the list at all. On the device, slot 2 has a solid blue light on.

Please could you advise how I can get the drive to appear in the PD list and then rebuild the dead drive.

Hi Mark,

It looks like there are multiple drive failed in the unit and Rebuild can be possible only with single drive.

I have done as you advised. Promise Utility shows green ticks next to the remaining 5 drives
