Resolve Issues With Your D-Link Network Attached Storage
D-LINK DNS 323
I have had a D-Link DNS 323 external hard drive for some time, but recently lost one of the drives after a crash. I thought that I was protected because I was using RAID 1, but it seems like my problems were only beginning. I removed the damaged drive and installed a new one. I could not get the new drive to format correctly, and now the system will not rebuild the RAID as I wanted. The device constantly requests that I install a drive, and then gives me the number of the drive which has been corrupted. It will not accept the new number, I would like to access the drives in order to use the data stored there. I would like some help in completing this rescue, because the D-Link is just refusing to budge, and I don’t want to risk losing the data which is on the old, uncorrupted, drive.
D-LINK DNS 323
I have a D-Link DNS 323 with a pair of drives inserted into it. I have saved the system with RAID 1, as this is supposed to be the most secure, and I then saved some data to the drives. A power cut occurred during the night, when the D-Link was not even on, but obviously was still connected to the router and the computer. I did not think that there was anything wrong with this until I plugged it in the next day. When that happened, I found out that it was not responding to my requests. I unplugged it, and plugged it back in. Then, the device sent me a message saying that one drive was degraded. I took out the named drive, and installed a new one. At first, the D-Link said that it needed to be resynced. This was done, and it then rebooted. It sent out a failure message, and then asked me to resync the remaining original drive, calling it “New drive 1”. I thought it might want to resync with the new drive, so clicked ok. Then it started to sync the new drive. I am stuck in a cycle of syncing each disk in turn.
