Can anyone help me with an disk image for an ix2 (2x500)

Post by Linde03 » Wed Mar 07, 2012 11:49 pm

My storcenter ix2 had a failing harddrive while running in striped mode.
Have installed new drive according to iomega instructions, but the thing won't come back to life.
If anyone can help me with images for 2 new blank drives I would like to try again.

I would try this: https://iomega-eu-en.custhelp.com/app/a ... a_id/24661
It updates your drive to cloud version. Use the rear USB ports, also it usually takes 2 attempts.

Thanks for the tip. I can try it, have nothing to loose. But will it work for ix2 as well? It lists only ix2 200 and 400, so mine is older version.

Is the old drive totally dead? If it still works, maybe it's worth re-fitting it, then try changing to Raid 1, then re-fit the new drive. You may find more help here: https://iomega-na-en.custhelp.com/app/c ... /1031,1044

yes drive 1 was totally dead. It's an seagate barracuda 7200.11 (ST3500820AS). If you google on this drive type and "problem" you will learn that this drive has a known problem causing it to fail prematurely.
So I have bought a new drive with specs close to this one. But it wouldn't revive itself like iomega helpdesk suggested. This is why I am looking for an image
