WNR after lighting strike

Hi - I had a lightning strike hit our house and it looks like my RN100NA is dead.

 

Question: can I just swap the drives into a new ReadyNas 212 - are they compatible?

 

I think the drives are still good.

 

thanks!

Welcome to the Community!

 

Sorry to hear that but yes you can just transfer the disks from your RN100 series to a new RN212 and it should boot normally provided that the disks are healthy and have not been affected by the lightning strike, hopefully everything's fine.

 

It's good practice to make sure to get the new RN212 setup with a spare disk first and then updated to the latest version before swapping the drives from the RN100 series.
