Help needed with Readynas212

Re: Help needed with Readynas212

No, meaning the 6TB is no longer in the system (and cannot be added back), so it's not being updated.  You can certainly decide to use that 6TB is a backup by mounting it in some way and using ReadyNAS backup jobs or some other means to keep it updated, and maybe that's what you were meaning and I misinterpreted that you were simply holding onto it as it was removed.

@ummjay - You could power down the NAS and then 

  • remove the 2x10 TB drives
  • reinsert the 6 TB drive by itself
  • power up the NAS

and that will give you access to the files on that drive.

 

But in terms of backup, it'd be better to connect it a PC, and use FreeFileSync (or some other backup software) to back up the NAS files - the same as you used before to create the temporary backup on the 10 TB drive.  RAID isn't enough, there are failure modes that will result in data loss even with RAID.
