Pulled two hard disks out of a QNAP NAS, and the whole RAID10 died on my. Put one back, and the array came back to life. Pulled another one out, and the array died again. WTF is wrong with you QNAP?

    Depends which ones you pull out really. I assume you have a 4 disk array. You must have pulled the disks out of only 1 half of the striped RAID 1 array.

    @BadFox Yes a 4 disk array. And it should have worked in one of the combinations, but it didn't. I pulled disks 1 and four out; it didn't work; I replaced disk 4 and pulled disk 3 out; still didn't work!

    @FuckJava are you sure that all your disks are actually working then? Either way, it's rather odd.

    @BadFox Yes I am sure.

    Why would u pull out of a RAID?

    @austudo Perhaps because I don't want any children

    @FuckJava Did you know you can use protection? You can buy Backups at a local shop

    @Jifuna I was trying to pull out to put it into protection

    @Nanos It's the fucking QNAP thing. I never had these issues with good old Intel and AOC RAID controllers.

    I had the issue all the low end RAID systems I tested.

    The solution was to set it up with one HD, then clone that disk to all the others.

    I can't remember what software I used, but I only found one clone application that copied the hidden tracks so to speak.

    Eg. the inbuilt RAID cloning software, did not work..

    Then you could pull any disk and it would stay up, else it would only stay up if you pulled any disk apart from the first one !

    I ended up ROBOCOPYing everything off the array, and then pulling the 2nd disk out
