Restoring failed drive
« on: October 30, 2011, 01:13:09 am »
What does "Max failed devices reached! Disabling full pre-validation on restore" mean?

Using latest build of Flexraid 2.0 on Win2k3.  I had a 1.5TB drive fail and replaced with another of the same size.  When I hit Restore for DRU2 (failed drive) Flexraid did recreate the folders and files but none of the files actually contain any data though they have size.  Vast majority are AVI's, text files that exist open up blank even though they may show as 66-100kb.    It's been in Parity Computation Process for 2 hours, percentage is still 0% I'm not sure if it's actually doing anything...

My first data restore and so far I'm feeling hopeless, unless I'm doing something wrong.

You need to post more information about your configuration and the full log.
The message means that you have as many failed drives as you have parity drives.
