I had a major data loss weeks ago when Google had their downtime and made sure not to repeat the same mistake by enabling upload verification. I noticed the other day that Google was having issues, and the CloudUI reported the error more than 250 times.
Today I checked and saw that a huge chunk of my are missing. I saw that my Cloud "Pool" was still working and there were a number of files, but then I had the intuition that this wasn't normal data loss like last time; it was isolated to one of the disks in the pool.
Pool Setup: Initially I had a 10TB Drive that had filled up, and to enlarge it, I went through the steps in the UI and it created another partition instead of enlarging the existing one. I pooled these two together to have them under the same Name and Drive Letter for organization purposes. In addition, I removed drive letters for the "pool drives" to prevent clutter.
Keeping the above in mind, I checked DrivePool, and it confirmed that the first Drive was "missing" and checking in Disk Management, the Drive is marked as "RAW". The first thing I did was follow these steps:
It doesn't seem to have done anything, as the drive is still RAW. I also assigned a Drive Letter to the problem disk, and ran "CHKDSK /f". It deleted index entries, and didn't complete due to "insufficient disk space to insert the index entry" it also placed unindexed files in "lost and found".
I need some advice on how to go forward with this, I don't want to lose 10 TBs of Data again. What can I do to recover my data?
Should I detach the disk, and reattach it?
