Hi guys. This just happened. Can you help me decide what to do about it? Thanks in advance. Please let me know what useful info you I should convey other than these screen shots.

I had the same problem although it wasn't on this big of a scale. From what I could gather it was a conflict with DE. To resolve it, I copied the files to a different machine, deleted those files from WHS and copied them back. Do you have a backup of these files and can you do that first?

This could be caused because some files were removed from the share but they still have a record as a tombstone. :blink:

 

As suggested, you could try to copy the missing files back to the shared folder, then reboot.

 

Or you could try the Conflict Resolver addin. http://www.wegotserved.com/2010/01/17/add-in-windows-home-server-conflict-resolver/ This could take a long time to complete, so to speed things up, select the share that needs to be scanned. On the right side, tick only the boxes that say delete corrupted files.

Thanks for both of your good responses. Now my console is showing all drives healthy. Hmmm. Today is all about copying my data and merging it with an existing backup.

It will sometimes show as unhealthy until the DE rebalances the drives.

It looks like it was a failed drive all along. I pulled all the drives and checked them on a Windows 7 machine. As soon as I plugged in one of the drives and booted from the Windows 7 box, I got an immanent drive failure message. I put the drive back into the WHS box, then within the Console, removed it from pool. It took quite a while, but it looks like my missing data is back and the error messages are gone. I am hoping to have WD replace the drive as it's under warranty.

So there has been a lot of discussion about drive problems of late. Is there a light weight program that can be installed on v1 to test the drive status. As in more testing than what v1 or Home Server Smart offers.

 

For instance, I have a drive that shows the warnings below.

 

Spin Retry Count Value is 100, which is the worst. So the status shows Degraded.

Temperature Value is 45 and the status shows Caution.

 

Another has

 

Reallocated Sectors Count Value is 100, which is the worst. So the status shows Degraded.

Temperature Value is 47 and the status shows Caution.

 

 

Are these anything to worry about? Should I change the drives out now?
