Recovering other single disk volumes

Post by John Winter » Tue Sep 17, 2019 7:43 am

Hi folks

I've googled the heck out of this but can't find an explanation

I've got a QNAP TS-439 in which I had a four Single Disk Volumes (I have other QNAPs with RAID5 for high value data). I've just had to replace the primary drive which had the main share on it. I thought, as they were all single volumes this wouldn't be an issue, but now I can't get to the shares on the remaining three EXT4 formatted drives.

How can I reload the shares on the other Single Disk Volumes which have all disappeared?

Guidance would be greatly appreciated

The primary disk contained the configuration for the whole NAS. As a result, it no longer knows about the other drives and what they contain. Open a QNAP helpdesk support ticket. Hopefully they can mount the other drive's volumes and rebuild your NAS. Using single drives is always a gamble, even for data you consider less risky as you now have to spend lots of time trying to "fix" things.
