I think i have deleted a drive by mistake? Can i Recover?


Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

 So i done a stupid thing in a bit of a panic. I had a drive fail falling over onto my dual parity (not a problem) but then a parity drive failed (it did not it just lost power) so in a panic and lack of knowledge i done a " new config" to restore the parity drive that now had power again not thinking that there is a drive missing in the system. I have now put the new drive in to replace the first failure but the system has stopped emulating the contents. Now the new drive is unmountable and needs a format to create a new file system on it. I assume that what i have done is unrecoverable and i will just loose the data that was on that original disk?

 

Not a huge loss but frustratingly time consuming to get it back.

Did the original "failed" disk really fail or was it actually dropped from the array because of a cable problem? You could try to mount it using the Unassigned Devices plugin. If it does mount you can copy your files off of it.

I don’t know but unfortunately the drive has been sent back to the manufacturer 😫 so I will never know.
