LACIE 301161U 2TB Ethernet Disk RAID powers on, but shuts down

It powers up and connects to the network, but after approximately 30 seconds it powers down. We moved this machine due to a flood and it never powered back up correctly.

SOURCE: Lacie Ethernet disk mini 500 Gb

I had exactly the same problem, no access to the windows media server - the no space message - and all my users missing from the user tab.

Following up from gogogo123's comment, we simply cleared the log and it was fine. I can only assume that there is an internal file size limit on the log file, and if it can't write your actions to the log then it doesn't do them!

SOURCE: Disk will not power down. Has vanished from my computer, but router IDs it.

Well according to LaCie's support when the power button is failing to work and the fan becoming inconsistent it is due to the power supply failing.

This is because the OS controls the power button and if it cannot boot fully because of a power problem, then functions of the drive are turned off, including the power button.

They are going to send me a new one.

SOURCE: Lacie Desktop Hard Disk beeps when connected

No much help I can give, when an hard drive beeps it has motor error or head error, the disk hardwar is faulty, and you are not able to recover anything from the disk.

A safe data recovery can only be performed by specialized companies on a facility called clean room, where dust is completely removed from the room using a vacuum.

The data recovery using this kind of equipment does not cost less than $800.

If the failed hard disk drive is replaced with the exact same capacity, RPM and make of hard drive, then the array can be rebuilt. Raid 0 cannot be rebuilt as each drive contains half of the data, If RAID 1 then can be rebuilt as data on each drive is an exact copy. However if combination of RAID 0 and RAID 1 then can be rebuilt. It's best really to handel this hands on, I recommend taking it to a computer technician especially if the information on it is important.

Thanking you

Backup slow


Hi,
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.

I cant see my external lacie hard drive on my mac. Was part of an ethernet network and able to use ok by 2 imacs and p. All of a sudden not visible anymore.


Just contact www.lacie.com great support. their answer for my drive was to upgrade the drive version and to reboot the drive. Maybe the last thing is enough. For me it worked.

If necessary update driver http://www.lacie.com/nl/support/drivers/driver.htm?id=10156

Follow the procedure below to reset the Network Space to factory defaults:
  1. Move the power switch to the OFF position. Wait for the drive to shut down.
  2. Turn ON the drive.
  3. Within about 3 seconds, flip the switch OFF and On several times.
  4. Immediately turn it ON
If the light flashes quickly, the unit is resetting itself. Attempt to connect to the drive again after about 1 minute using the default username and password (by default, they are both admin.)

Lacie 2 big does,nt boot


Hmmm, reseting worked on mine. Identical symptoms except light stayed blue, not red. Unable to power down.
Before trying to get the drive working I got the data off using the procedure in the second post of this thread:

http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/peripherals-hardware/126831-reseting-lacie-2big-network.html

You need a linux system running. Maybe a live cd will do. I installed on an old IDE drive I had.

I then rest the decive using this procedure from Lacie and my drive is working again. Worthless though, because I can't trust it.

The procedure below will reset the 2Big Network to factory settings:
IMPORTANT NOTE: Following the procedure below can ERASE ALL DATA on the drive. Prior to following these directions, verify important data is stored securely on a different storage device.
Switch the drive OFF. Once it has shut down, ensure the power switch remains in the OFF position.
If the drive is in the SAFE mode, move the RAID switch to the BIG mode.
PRESS AND HOLD the button on the front. MOVE the power switch to the ON position. The light on the front of the drive will start blinking.
Once the light stops blinking, RELEASE the front button.
When released, it will begin BLINKING AGAIN. When it stops, PRESS AND HOLD the front button. The light will begin to blink again.
When the light stops blinking, RELEASE the button. The drive is now resetting itself. Switch the RAID selector back to SAFE if desired.
To restore data if it was lost during the process, recreate the shares and users on the unit prior to the reset. Any firmware updates applied will need to be applied again.

One way around is to install Mac Drive on your system. First you format your hdd in HFS+ on a mac platform, with any size you want.Then, after you installed Mac drive on your PC, it will work.

How to recover data from lacie etherdisk when it does not keep a network conntection.


I'll have to look into it a little more but off the top of my head I would say that the nic may be going bad or some other component of the etherdisk. You can try opening it up and putting the hard drive into an enclosure and connecting it to a pc via usb to get the data, you can also then share the usb drive and use it over the network, however removing the hard drive may void any warranty you may have. If the hard drive is in fact bad then you should be able to replace it and then continue to use the device. I'll get back to you when I get more info about the device.
