Question Lacie 2Big NAS, Front LED Solid Red after Factory Reset.

Jun 2, 2020
I fished out my old Lacies 2Big Nas, which I found still worked when I booted it. but, since I couldn't remember the admin info for it I did a factory reset.

Unfortunately when I did it, I would get a Solid Red light in the front LED, while the two HDD LEDs at the back were Blue.

I have tried resetting it multiple times and even changed the HDDs and still no luck.

If anyone can help me out that would be great

and thanks in advance.

The instructions I had were these
Power off the 2big NAS.
Press and hold down the front LED button. Without releasing the front button, turn the product on using the power switch on the rear of the product.
Keep the front button pressed until the front LED becomes solid red, then release it.
The LED will blink red. Within five seconds, press the front button once to confirm the reset. The front LED will blink blue for several seconds.
The front LED will blink red/blue during a system reset. The LaCie 2big NAS is ready when it reboots and the front LED is static blue.
