Hi users hope someone can assist - I have searched threads but cant see an identical issue.
I have a RN Pioneer pro running recent firmware that has been running happily for about 18 months.
A couple of days ago I couldn't access the data on the drive and noticed that it was trying to resync and was stuck at 35%. I tried to connect with frontview with no success and performed a hard shutdown from the front power button. Upon reboot it tried to resync again and I left it overnight to find that it was stuck on 6.5% in the morning. I again performed a hard shutdown and now the system is stuck on "Booting - Checking root FS" I can find it with Raidar but it confirms the FS checking stage and wont let me access.
This has been hanging on the boot stage for hours and i cannot connect to the unit with frontview and have limited (almost nil!) SSH skills/knowledge. All 6 drives numbers came up in the booting stage before the root FS check.
I am aware that I can reset from boot menu and skip the FS check but understand that this could corrupt by data?
I have 6 2TB disks in the system with about 3TB of data and no way of backing it up onto another system at present - even if I did i cant access the unit.
Did you ever get this issue resolved? We have a ReadyNAS here that's been stuck at 41% FS Check for days/weeks here (we only use it occasionally) but want to get it working again. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Generally we like new threads for problems, even if they appear to be similar.
Though my advice is the same: file an on-line support ticket, and in the meantime power down the NAS and test each drive in a PC with vendor tools. Label the drives so you will restore them to the same slots.
