That is the typical 'wrap around' size of a 3TB disk, when examined by a bios/OS which doesn't support >2TiB disks (> 2^32 sectors)
Just been reading a bit about that, apparently my ASUS P5QL not support drives larger than 2 TB. =(
you can read how to assemble the data volume on a HMND-CE. I have no reason to believe it will be different on you EZ Media. You can follow the tutor and skip the mounting at the end, and run fsck on the device node instead.
Thanks for the link! I'll take a look and try!
But seeing your story I think it won't help much. I think you have a failing disk. And a hardware problem cannot be solved in software. Do you have important data on that disk, without backup?
I'm a little confused, the HDD does not make any strange noise (although this is not indicative of defective disc) and when I want to access some folders or files works perfect. Then, sometime seems locked and can no longer access it through the network. The HDD is not locking/freezing always in the same folder or file that I am trying to access. So I think these are indications that the disc may have some just bad sectors where some basic system files are allocated (just my theory, nothing certain). I managed to resurrect multiple disks using HDD Regenerator so I thought this would be no exception but I don't know now....
Here in Buenos Aires, in recent last years, we are experiencing power outages and significant low voltages. Maybe somehow that has affected my hard drive, since the first time I remember it started failing occurred after an abrupt power outage (about 5 months ago). Actually, the NAS has only one year + a few months of use.
Fortunately, in the HDD there is no important data... I use it more as a media server than anything else but I used to make temporary copies of files I want to keep for some time, some client files, I have a database of PC Drivers that took me some time to download, etc.
Again, thanks for your time and patience! I hope to write soon giving good news.
Oh, and I almost forgot... Happy New Year!
