I took apart a LaCie 2TB external hard drive because one of the drives was bad; it was clicking when I turned the hard drive encasement on.
It has 4 500 GB hard drives set to RAID 0, and two hard drive controller cards so the hard drives are set in pairs as 1 master and 1 slave.
I don't have a spare 500GB hard drive to replace the bad one with, and the external hard drive will not work without all 4 drives.
I didn't have much time to mess with it, so I'm wondering anyone knows of a way to get it to use one hard drive controller card because I know that pair of hard drives works or if adding a different capacity hard drive will work. I appreciate any suggestions.
