I've had my first Segate drive failure in my 440 system.
A couple of issues came up during the replacement process.
The executable Blackarmor s/w would not create a new Volume on the drive I was trying to install to backup the failing drive in bay #1. I tried multiple times, rebooted the 440 unit multiple times, etc. with no success.
Finally, I just happen to connect to the drive directly with the IP address using a browser, and the system allowed the new colume to be added on the new replacement drive. Has anyone ever experienced this before?
Also, the 2nd drive in the system (1TB) was changed from a Span drive to Raid 1 using the failing drive in bay #1. The drive #2 went through a recovery process without my intervention. Has anyone seen this before?

Join the club. Are you glad you bought a NAS from seagate yet?
Dont extpect to be able to rebuild anything after a failure other then rebuilding from scratch. That is the only thing that seagate fully supports. So if you get a drive failure or raid controller failure expect to restore your NAS from a backup. Anything else is just pure luck.
