hdd initialization without erase


Question

6.1.7 ok ...upgrade to 6.2.2 failed...restore loader 1.02b and boot loop.

 

reinstall in another hd 6.1...connect old hd in the dsm and is ok.

but when I try to reconnect it to the dsm initializing it it warns me that I will lose all the data. is there a way to restore everything without connecting it to the pc and moving everything to the new hd?

 

thx !

Can you try to set up DSM with the loader that you want and and with a spare HDD (the one has no data). When DSM up and running you can try to connect the HDD with data back.

I tried but the HD with the data to be recovered is not initialized and to do so it tells me that all the data will be deleted .... now I try another loader ... I read something on the MDADM to restore but it would only be used to use with pc

The data with HDD you run it as basic disk? I would suggest you to back up / try to recover the data using ubuntu live usb before action to avoid any risk.

it works perfectly and I see the data that I can move. today I will try with loader 5.2 and see if it connects the old disk.
I wanted to try the update ... too bad. I stick with 6.1.7 which is stable for my hardware. all this doesn't make me buy an "official" nas for the simple talk of the too tight synology hardware
