  Raid is healthy but all files gone?
Posted by: Hixbot - 03-25-2018, 11:14 AM - Forum: N5550 - Replies (1)

I have a 10tb drive as JBOD in my first raid volume.  4x4tb Raid 5 in my second raid volume.   Two raid volumes, the jbod 10tb drive is dev/md0, i gave it the identity "Drive 1" and is the "master raid" with all the modules and system folders.

I tried enabling NFS on "drive1" experimented with it and then decided I didn't want it so I removed the nfs share.  I rebooted the NAS and discovered all the data on "drive 1" is gone!  The master raid system folders and modules etc are still there, but my "drive 1" share is empty.
It's like it was all deleted when I removed the NFS share!  Funny thing is as soon as I removed the share I heard the drive start spinning and seeking for like 5 minutes before the removal action finished, I thought it was removing nfs permissions or something, but I guess it was deleting everything!

I had 8 terabytes out of 10 terabytes, now its 6 gigabytes out of 10 terabytes!  Raid volume appears healthy.  of course I'm not going to write any files, because I need to find a way to recover my data.  unfortunately my transmission torrent module automatically wrote a downloads folder as it autostarted on boot up and tried to resume my torrents.

I have backups of alot of the data but not all.   I could use testdisk to recover deleted partitions but that would mean I'd have to remove the drive and add it to a linux computer.  Although, the jbod raid volume is intact on the NAS, and I would lose that also if I removed the drive and installed it on a linux machine.  

so I feel like it would make more sense to run testdisk on the NAS directly via commandline.  having trouble building testdisk for the n5550.

any help or advice would be appreciated!

  plex module for n7700SAS
Posted by: Joe_Wulf - 03-09-2018, 08:57 AM - Forum: Thecus Modules - Replies (3)

yes, I know this is an older NAS, but I've had 99.99999% uptime in the past 8 years using it.

It originally had a plex module, years ago.... haven't used it.
I've recently backed up all my data, and successfully upgraded the firmware to v5.03.02.8.
Now that I'm looking for the plex module, it isn't there.  <sigh>

I've checked the Thecus.com support download page for the N7700SAS, and there is no module there for the plex media server.

Where can I get that please?

Thank you.

  Remote Backup issue
Posted by: Redbacks - 03-05-2018, 12:17 PM - Forum: N5550 - No Replies

OS 7.0 for both NAS

I'm trying to do a remote backup from one NAS subfolder to another NAS subfolder, problem, the system is doing nothing with the transfers, it's much quicker for me, to manually copy 200gig, than your remote backup app can do, it can copy a root directory to a new NAS root directory. But anything else is a headache. Waste of time.

  Printer Configuration
Posted by: Blackbear199 - 03-02-2018, 04:00 AM - Forum: N4810 - Replies (4)

Should'nt this be saved somewhere?

What i mean is for example i dont use my printer alot so i switch it off.
If my NAS reboots the printer configuration is gone,if i turn it back on(printer) i need to edit the name again as it goes to usb-printer.

Should'nt the configuration be saved until i choose to delete it?

I realize i dont use it in a ideal enviroment like a office(where it would be on all the time) but if i did every NAS reboot or pwr loss the printer would need to be reconfigured and added again to all pc's as the existing configuration doesnt seem to work when this happens(status shows a cups error).I delete it and add it again as a new printer and it works until the next time.

  Modern Motherboard for N5200pro case?
Posted by: dlaloum - 02-22-2018, 12:50 PM - Forum: N5200PRO - Replies (1)

Hi Folks,

the N5200's are getting "long in the tooth" - just wondering whether the motherboard is of a standard format that could be replaced with a lower power consumption / higher power current generation motherboard.... (and then choose a relevant OS, etc...)

Or is it a totally custom format?

  Modified date changed to actual date
Posted by: wbree - 02-19-2018, 03:21 AM - Forum: N5550 - No Replies

I was deleting some maps on my NAS and suddenly most of the other maps and files changed their "modified date" to the actual date of the system.
How can I go back to the original dates?

  Official NAS Apllication Issue.
Posted by: DeNiro - 02-03-2018, 02:20 PM - Forum: N4520/N4560 - Replies (1)


Have had loads of issues with N4520 recently (as posted). Left the NAS turned off for a few weeks, came back to it to have another go and the issues it had before have gone!!

Another issue has arisen now and that is when I go into Official Nas Application, there are no apps and a Message Box pops up with "On offline mode, here you can install/uninstall app and system file" and I only have the option to OK it (see attached).

I have read of a similar issue to which a reply was given to make sure the DNS settings were correct and mine definitly are. I have reset to factory default and even read some other threads that point to URL's that are invalid.

Is there anyone who can help me resolve this please as all I can use it for is a file or backup server instead of being able to add the apps I had on it before?

Thanks a lot in advance.
