I have had this ReadyNas NV+ for a number of years now. Vague memory says it was late in 2007 but it may have been late in 2008.
I have had no problems at all with the NAS for a very long time. About 3 months ago I occasionally could not get it to spin up the drives if I tried to get a file from it. I just use it for archival purposes and backups in a RAID configuration.
About 14 months ago I added two more 2TB drives to the 512MB drives that the NAS came with and, after a configuration process, it worked as expected.
6:47am this morning I received this message;
A newer version of the firmware for your ReadyNAS device is now available. Your ReadyNAS will download the update and send you further instructions once the download is completed.
Date: Wed Jun 20 23:52:54 2012
Note the date says June 20?
Then a few mins. later I get this Message Titled
System Update Status (nas-01-69-42)
Please reboot your ReadyNAS device to continue with the update process.
Well I powered down the NAS and now it is as dead as a doornail. It won't start up at all. No lights, Nothing.
Any suggestions gratefully received.
