Freaking *rap

Post by leonbollerup » Tue Aug 16, 2016 6:34 pm


I got my hands on 3x lacie boxes that both is dead in the water - the previus owner decided to null the disks before selling them.

My new (worst enemy) is:

2 x 2Big Network v2
1x 2Big NAS

All of them will nulled 2TB disks.

Coming from the wonderfull world of FreeNAS/Qnap and Synology i seems i have bought myself just about the worst thing you can get your hands on - so my hopes are that some genius here can help out.

Am i right to asume that OS/firmware/whatever is installed directly on the disks.. and since the disks is nulled there is basiclly no way to get them back in action.

Logically, i have tried the usual resets (both pr. youtube, lacies website etc) - I have also contacted Lacie support - their "best" option was to download the opensource software and find some guide online.... riiiiiiight.. so thats not gonna happen :(

Suggestions welcome.. even ready to offer a bounty to whomever that can get these bastards back up and running.

For the 2Big v2 Installing firmware on fresh disks (2Big 2), or

For the 2Big NAS, did you already try the LaCie Network Assistant? I remember I have read it can install firmware on an empty NAS.
