Best way to copy Lacie firmware onto another hard drive

Post by Biostim » Wed Aug 10, 2016 10:47 am

Hi! I have a Lacie Cloudbox 2TB with the original Lacie firmware in it. Is there a way of copying this onto another hard drive?
Tried to copy it but I wasn't successful. Took out the hard drive and using a sata-usb, I plugged it to my mac. Copied the first 5GB with dd command and then copied the image onto an empty 500GB hard drive. Tried it, pressed the reset button on the back of the cloudbox, tried the recovery option but nothing. I didn't check anything else. All I know is the cloudbox keeps blinking blue (slow).

The goal here is to save the original LaCie firmware somewhere (as an image or in another smaller hard drive) just in case something happens to the original hard drive. I can even share it if someone wants it.

Thanks.

Now I can get access to the web interface but there are no folders and the red led is on. I'm assuming there is something wrong with the file system. I did everything on a mac.
Does anyone know how I can format the partition properly?
Thanks.

I finally did it! I was able to copy the Lacie original firmware from a 2TB to a 256GB drive.

Thanks to those who showed some interest and at least read my posts.

My problem is now solved.

Hi. Sorry for the late reply. I'm working abroad at the moment and all the instructions and files are in my PC at home.
