Mac Mini 2018, QNAP TR-004U DAS.
I’ve been untarring some backup data on this drive the past few days, and it seemed like everything was good - it was reading, opening files, writing, etc. But in the last day every time I tried to fire up an app like Forklift, I was getting the spinning blue ball. So I figured something may be wonky, and I rebooted.
- In Disk Utility, the disk shows up but I get the spinning blue ball every time I try to access it
- QNAP’s management software is convinced that everything is healthy, but shows 0 KB / 24.0 TB
There should be 19 TB or so of data on this drive. Nothing weird with lights on the device or anything.
Theoretically I have all the data in Backblaze, so I could restore if something was weird, but right now I can’t even get the drive to show me basic stuff in Disk Utility. It’s not greyed out, it’s not running an fsck.
So I couldn’t even blast the volume and start over.
Any ideas what might be going on?
