Drive failure




I've had the dreaded happen, my first storage hdd failure on my server. It would appear that I did a terrible job of setting up snapraid and it wasn't configured correctly so I don't think a restore is possible. It isn't immediately obvious what files are missing since the drive failure. Will the files that were on the failed drive just disappear from the pooled drive? If so it would seem that all the files that I really care about are still there and I will just configure snapraid with the new drives and make sure it checks regularly.

That's a plus!

That said, I know it doesn't help now, but there are a couple of posts on the forum here that cover how to index/catalog your files.  It may be worth checking those out.

Also, if it's TV shows/movies/etc, there are software that can help make inventorying them easier.
