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

First and the foremost thing is that when u backup any info to an external hard drive try only back up the data that u have saved. Coz application cannot be saved if done they cannot be retrived. Now if those files are asking for permissions then right click on the file - properties - then on the securities - click on add - then Under Enter the object names to seclect type in Everyone then click on Check Name now Everyone will come in Underlined - click on OK - U will come back to properties tab then on top click Everyone - And under Permissions for everyone Under Full Control Check ALLOW - Then OK
this should fix the issue.
If this does not helps, since u have transfered all the data back to the PC why not format the External Hard Drive. Connect the Drive right click on it the see it teh format option is there or not if present then foprmat it.
It all depends on how mission critical this NVR is, (and how much money you have to spend)
A good rule of thumb is the more redundancy the better, so in theory, if you have the money, you should buy the second NVR, however if you cant afford an entire second unit, you should look at doing hard drive backups of that unit.
If you have any more question, please let me know!
You don't specify whether previously on your USB it was the same lacie external or whether it was a different external drive. It sounds like you were using a different external drive, most likely a single drive.
You've specified that you've got your lacie setup in raid 5. Raid 5 gives a very good read spead and a good redundancy for incase a drive fails, however it's write speed is very very slow.
It will be much slower than a single drive on USB for writing to it (i.e. backups), but you should see a huge performance boost in reading from the drive than your previous usb.
If you need it to be faster, you would be better suited looking at configuring it for one of the following raid setups:
Raid 0: striping (not recommended for backups) - data is split over all drives, however if 1 drive fails you lose all data.
Raid 10: striping + mirror . half the drives are striped (like above), but the other half mirror the striping half so if one drive fails there's a backup of it. You only get half the disk space though, so if you have 4 x 1Tb drives, then you'll only get 2Tb of space.
Give up. I've had Mionet for over a year, and I have not been able to reliably access it remotely using Mionet, even on a 32-bit system. Mionet is finally advertising a 64-bit system, yet it still doesn't work--the drive shows "offline". Advice from Mionet in my many attempts to get support says to reset the hard drive--kinda hard when you're away on vacation. Even using Mionet web doesn't work reliably. In the end, the many, many chances I've given Mionet and Western Digital support to fix this have only resulted in frustration, delays, and ineffective advice. Overall, Western Digital has failed to produce a product that's remotely accessible, and you're left with a local-access-only outboard hard drive.
I don't understand your description. sorry. But if you are switching over from Mirror to stripping then you will surely loose your files. Switching raid configuration will also redo the hard drive relativity and will reformat the drives automatically. If your backup is a server then you need to go to system bios and configure the raid from there. I suggest backup the backups first before you do it. If your backup is an external hard drive then go to its http settings and configure it there. It will surely format your drive.
If you check their website, you will find: Upgrading from a previous version of the firmware (to version 1.4) is a “data destructive” process. it is strongly recommended that you first
backup your existing data to another system in your environment. It is
also recommended that you understand your current configuration of
users, groups and shares to be able to recreate this under the 1.4
Ouch... You didn't say who's NAS device it is? It sounds like you may have a firmware issue on controller. You may need to reset the controller to the factory defaults. I'd suggest that you contact the manufacturer for details on how to do so. They should also have details on how to recover your data. If you can let us know what kind of a NAS device it is, maybe we can find more details on it.
