Hi,
I did not post a reply your question because i was trying to backup and image the drives that I have. this is taking 8h per drive and there is 4 of them.

I will post the replies once i am done and reassembled the unit again.

First of all make the backup of your all RAID hard drive, before it attempts to rebuild the array risk loosing your content forever. You can use it as a backup device later on. Any valuable data should not be trusted to RAID without a full backup solution. So if one drive failed, you can take it out and back in again, instead of putting a brand new disk to rebuild the array. RAID 5 is supposed to handle 1 failed drive without problem. You can still try that after you've backed up your current disks.

Does anyone have a conclusion to this thread? I am experienceing a similar issue with my ix4-200d. I had drive 1 go bad. I replaced it and the device tried to reconstruct the data but failed. I rebooted the device and it attempted to reconstruct the data again. At this point the file structure was in tact and I should have backed up my files but didn't. This time the device failed and no data is readable. I have attempted to recover the disks using the support.html but the device gets stuck on 75%. I have backed up the images of the drives with drive 1 having some hardware issue so I only really have 3 good disks which may be why the recovery is freezing at 75%. I can SSH into the device and when I run

cat /proc/mounts
cat /proc/partitions

My results are identical to the thread. I have not tried to do a read only mount yet. As soon as my current recovery is finished I will attempt the read only mount.
Any help is appreciated.
