Use MySafe to back up the files stored on the Ethernet Disk mini Home to
an attached USB storage device. This way, if files on the Ethernet Disk
mini are damaged or accidentally deleted, you can restore them to their
original locations. There are three main steps to using MySafe,Connecting an external USB hard drive,Backing up files to the external USB hard drive,Restoring files to the Ethernet Disk mini (if necessary) Before you can back up files, you need to connect a hard drive to your
Ethernet Disk mini via the USB port on the back. Use a hard drive that is USB 2.0 compatible. While connecting an external hard drive make sure your Ethernet Disk mini is turned on and connected to your network.Turn on the external USB hard drive.Connect the external hard drive's USB cable to the USB port on the back
of the Ethernet Disk mini, just like you would connect the external
hard drive to your computer.Confirm that the drive is
properly connected. Log in and click on the Administer HipServ link.
Click on USB External Storage under System. To back up files, navigate to the file or folder you want to back up to
the external hard drive and click on the disk icon in the "Backup"
column of the file list.When you back up files to MySafe, the
Ethernet Disk mini duplicates the file path in MySafe so that everything
you back up is organized in MySafe just as in its original location.
So, if you copy a file from MyLibrary, a MyLibrary folder will appear in
MySafe, with all folders leading to the backed up file.
Always click the Safely Remove Drive button on the USB External Storage
before unplugging your MySafe external hard drive. Wait for the
interface to change and for the Use Drive button to appear before
disconnecting the USB cable from the Ethernet Disk mini. Failure to safely remove your external hard drive before
disconnecting the USB cable can cause data loss and/or damage the drive.
Always use the Safely Remove Drive feature when disconnecting an
external hard drive.
this drive is mainly a Network drive. To use it with the USB, if you have a PC, you will need drivers that can be downloaded from LaCie.
If you have a MAC, there are no way to use the drive with USB.
If you have a Router at home, connect the drive to it with an Ethernet cable and then use the LaCie Network Assistant to access it. It is easier.
I am having similar problems with my HomeBase. I have 3 x 1Tb Seagate external USB2.0 NTFS drives (FreeAgent) connected. The aim is to have my digital TV, LG set-top box, Apple TV, PC and Laptop all access the files and capacity offered by the NAS option.
They work fine in 'single user network USB' mode, but are very flaky / non-existant in 'NAS, multi-user' mode. There are times when the HomeBase is restarted and recognises one or more of the drives in NAS mode, but mostly they are not recognised. On the back of the unit, you can see the LED next to the USB port leading to the drives initially stay lit, but then flashes for 10-15 seconds and then goes out.
As I want the hard disks available to multiple devices I need to use the NAS setting.
Did you try to set the drives into 'Network USB mode' rather than NAS mode. Does that help?
Did anyone have a solution to the problem? Unfortunately Belkin technical support have not been very useful yet...
Same issue here
Running win XP on my laptop and I have my LaCie NAS on my network and was working fine 'til today.
Issue: unable to access my LaCie NAS
troubleshooting done:1- rebooting NAS 2-power cycling the whole network 3- also tried accessing NAS from a Mac Book (used to be able) 4- nable to ping it by name or by IP
I had one my NAS's shares mapped to Y:, Now I can see the share from my network places but when I go to map network drive the Y: is no more assigned to that share.
My next move would be to re-install the NAS but I want to know and make sure that this will not delete what I have on that NAS.
Thanks to anyone that would jump in and give a hand to a desperate novice in Networking
1. Plug the drive in a Linux computer, or use a Linux Live disk. 2. Create all the partitions according to the readme file. Use extended partition for the first "container". Linux Swap for the second partition. Use Ext3 format for the remaining. 3. Extract all the SDA6-8 files with bzip. 4. Use "dd" command to write those images to partitions sda6 - sda8 which you just created with this command: dd if=/dev/home/ubuntu/sda6 of=/dev/sda6 bs=512 5. Substitude /home/ubuntu above for the location where you placed the image files. 6. Once all 3 images have been written, the drive should be good to go. Put it back in the edmini, start it up and see if the website comes up. You may have the "format" the drive from the admin utility once its up and going.
