  1. NAS Drive now a HDD


    Hi all I have a LACIE NAS which Ive never really used properly as a NAS as I would turn it off when not using it and literally just used it to back stuff up once in a while.

    so i went to use it recently after about 6 months and it wouldnt turn on and i think there is something wrong with the power supply on it. So i thought Id get a caddy and just use the HDD in it as a big external HDD for back up

    However the partitioning on it is all over the place and Im not sure what is best practice so would like some advice. Im not bothered what was on this before

    attached is a pic from Mini Tool to show what the partitions look like

    I tried to create what looks like partition E in the pic but dont think this has worked properly so happy for someone to advise best practice here

    TIA

    Bart

  3. HDD Corrupt ?

    Hi,

    There are many possible reasons this issue is happening. We'd like to ask few questions below:

    • What is the brand name of you Hard Disk Drive?
    • How old is the HDD?
    Since you already tried multiple troubleshooting steps, we suggest visiting the manufacturer's website. Find and download a hard drive diagnostic software to help resolve the issue.

    Let us know how it goes.
