I have a Lacie 2big network set to raid 1. Something happened during the crash of a program and moving some files and now a couple of the folders have been renamed, other folders are invisible to the computer (still there as I can see them on another computer) and the speed is slow. On transfers does 1mb then pauses for 3-5secs then another 1mb and so on. practically useless for its purpose.
I cannot use a disk utility that I can find that will repair the file structure on the nas.
Any help will be gratefully received, spent days with Lacie email finally getting "best to reformat" but would take about 80 days to back up the data.
Because it sounds like the file system itself is damaged, you may indeed be stuck with the reformat option. Can you delete the folders in question manually (saving the data to a local PC if possible first)? Just a thought.
When you pull the drive and put into a bay, your system will likely not recognize the file system (and won't be able to access the folders/files) because of the NAS OS config. Gparted can certainly be used to add/delete/change partitions, but is probably not going to help you recover data. Sorry for your troubles.
