I pulled the unit down yesterday, pulled the drives out, starred hard at
the bare drives for a little while, then, pushed them back in (same slots)
started up, it all seemed to work
I wasn't quite sure what to run from console, so used the web i/f to
run smart tests on all drives, all OK
but, 'check disk' failed to run, and, on one of several power up (I was
also testing UPS shut down/restart)
so I reformatted to whole volume, and, now it seems OK
EXCEPT, LCD panel has message about HD4 ejected, and, googleing for HD
info (WDC WD1002FBYS-02A6B03.0) brought another QNAP user (Raid5)
reporting same drive failing after just few weeks from bnew...
anyhow, I think I'll see how it goes over next few days
[Strip Disk Volume: Drive 1 2 3 4] The file system is not clean. It is
suggested that you run "check disk".
