If you have a decent backup, go for the 6TB, after all, you are not running a businessaeroxr1 wrote: ↑Fri Jul 13, 2018 11:23 amI bought this hard disk because initially I want add a new hard drive to expand the space. Now after what happened I don't know what to do :
- increase the space to 6TB
- use the second drive for a SHR or Raid 1
There is only 2 sector damaged, I can access to all data inside hard disk via file station , and i suppose I can also access to that data with linux. Dsm say that the volume is blocked in write and that I can't repair file system from myself but i have to contact the synology assistant
SomeTimes ago I send an acer notebook to assistance because didn't boot because bios flash didn't go well and Acer send me a new notebook. Few weeks later an user contacted me via facebook, and told that acer replace his not working pc with a replacement. And... this replacement was my old pc regenerated but not formatted, and all my data still there...]
I write the answer in bold. I don't know why you are so angry with me, but it's ok
However I installed dsm on the new hard disk, after the reboot dsj215j doesn't accept ip from my router DHCP of my router has some problem with last firmware
Only 2 sectors damaged, for now ... stop messing with that and get it REPLACED while you still can in FREE warranty!
I never had issues with ACER either, but then again, I never send anything that has data on it, so in your case, just hard format the drive before you send it to WD.
And I am not angry, just a little upset because you are dragging your story. Just act and get it over with, you have all the info you need. If you want to give yourself a hard time with tools and try this and try that, go ahead, but then that is not a support issue anymore, sorry.
