WHS says disk missing, but disk looks good in Management RRS feed

  • Question

  • My WHS says that one of my SATA drives is missing (consequently with a ton of 'file conflict' errors and dead backup service), but the drive shows up in disk management as healthy.  If I mount the drive to a path/letter and look at it, it looks like an ordinary and fully functional WHS NTFS volume.

    What do I have to do to tell WHS to re-mount this drive?  I tried rebooting the server (several times), and no improvement.

     

    Thanks!

  • This is just a guess, but I had a similar issue on my server. It turned out that I actually had a failed or failing drive.

    In my case I had to turn the server off and disconnect one storage drive and then boot the server up.

    If no change I shut it down again and plugged the previously disconnected storage drive back in.

    Then I disconnected the next storage drive and turned the server on again.

    Eventually I found a drive that once disconnected the server quit complaining and I was able to delete the offending drive.

    Don't know if that will help, but it's what I had to do.
