I have been using a Thecus N2100 for a few years now and it has been very reliable as a backup solution. However, just recently, I have been unable to access the folders on the drive. When logging in through the browser, I get a message that says "System under maintenance". I'm not sure what this means or what to do in order to reaccess the files. I don't really want to re-format as I am sure to loose information.
Any help would be much appreciated. Many thanks, Pauline

Open the Windows Explorer where you see the drives. Find the System properties Ribbon (under Files, Edit, etc,) On the left, at the bottom you see Maintenance. Click the link to open the Maintenance Center. Look for Backup.
when it was new it was a good reliable car, however it is now nearly 20 years old and over 90% of its model year siblings have long ago met the junkyard. at age 10 things start needing replacement on all cars, so if the thing was owned by a person who did all that maintenance, then maybe it has a few more years of use left in it, if not then avoid it. if it has an automatic transmission, stay away unless you are sure it has been rebuilt at least once.
I am an IMac user, and although almost everything works reliably really well, there are a few issues. However, most of these can be resolved by accessing the Mac help resources. If you have registered with Apple, and are under warranty, you should be OK. I've found that they are able to help you resolve issues. If you are out of warranty, or an un-covered second user, it may be more difficult to resolve your problem. Worst case, you take your gear to an Apple center and get their techs to sort it out.
Did you use the Time Machine function to back up your stuff?
Alternatively, did you ask them to install your hard drive into the new system? (assuming it was a compatible swap) If you did the backuo manually, your system may not have restored your setup the way it was.
Although I hate being held hostage by Apple's superiority persona and related superior costs, their hardware and software has performed reliably. Their backup hardware is twice the cost of popular cheaper peripherals, but as I've said to other folks, with Apple, you know that you are getting hardware and software that has been tested and proven to work reliably with your host system. The reason I switched to Mac after 20+ PC years is that the PC hardware and software problematic issues have caused and cost me far more in terms of money, time and frustration than if I had gone with Mac in the beginning.
Please contact me if you need more help.
I'm assuming this is Windows. You will need to do a partial system backup but it's going to be nearly as large as an entire system backup. You will need to backup 1. System Settings 2. \Program Files\Microsoft Office and 3. your root directory (e.g., C:\Windows). If you do not do 1. and 3., your applications will not run - there will be no registry values.
Try turning the unit off for a little while, unplug it from the source even. afer about 5 minutes plug it back in and try it again. You may have a bad battery, how old is the unit. UPS batteries should be changed out every 3 year's, max every 5 year's if you want good reliability. At 5 years you are taking a chance.
