RAID-iate

Well, the RAID box I had for seven years finally gave up the ghost.  I had a second box I’d bought a while ago, but didn’t have any drives for it.

So, when the first one said goodbye, I pulled the drives from that and put them in the new box.  Two big issues:  the drives were NOT the recommended kind, and the unit might have been damaged when, a year or so ago, my air-conditioning unit leaked water into the closet.  Anything cardboard ended up being soaked into rottenness.

But the unit powered up, it saw the drives, and I recreated the array.  Tried to copy stuff to it, and it started alarming…so I guess I’ll wait until I can afford those drives.  In the meantime, I have an 8T external which I’ll use.

Work on the new project is going pretty well, but every step forward requires a few side steps, so it’ll show up eventually.

Thanks for visiting!
