Hard Drive Removal Not Doing Anything.. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 5 Hard drives and want to remove one of them.  it's a 320 gig so I went to the server storage screen and right clicked on it, chose remove..  It has now been sitting at "Please Wait for While this Hard Drive is Removed" screen for almost 24 hours..  The bar hasn' moved, in fact it hasn't even started to fill up and the hard drive light on my server is not blinking or making any hard drive noise at all..  I have removed drives before, in fact two days ago I removed a 160 and it took a couple of hours...  Nothing like this...  Any suggestions?

  • I ended up remote desktop into the server and checked disk management to confirm that nothing was happening.  So I rebooted the server and everything fine.  I tried to remove the hard drive again and this time it's working as intended.
