HI All,

I recently got a Seagate 4 Bay NAS.
I am running it in JBOD.
I currently have a 1Tb + 4tb + 4tb + 2 tb in it.
Everything was running fine until I added the 2tb drive.
Now it randomly shuts off after about 10 mins and the
only way to turn it on is to unplug it at the wall and plug it back in.
I have read up and think that it's probably the 2tb that's causing the
issue, however I was wondering if there is a way to remove it without
causing drama to the JBOD and other drives.

Thanks!

JBOD, by definition, each disk is independent. Removing the 2TB will be unknown to the other disks.

JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks)

Hard drives in a JBOD configuration store data sequentially. For example, data is written to Disk 1 first. Once Disk 1 is full, data will be written to Disk 2, then Disk 3, etc. Two advantages to this level of RAID are:

  • 100% availability of the hard drives' total storage capacity
  • Easy expansion
JBOD’s weakness is that it has no data protection. Should a hard drive fail, all data on that hard drive will be lost.

Overall the NAS should not care if the drive is removed with or without any data being written to that 2 TB drive.
