I have an Icy Dock mb662useb-2s-1 in Raid 1 mode with 2 Seagate ST32000641AS Xt 2TB drives that worked well for years, connected to a Mac. I recently determined one of the drives was failing, and purchased an identical Seagate to replace it. Can anyone clarify the procedures in the manual for me?
First, should the new drive be Mac formatted, mounted individually in another enclosure or whatever, before installing in the Icy Dock?
Then, from the manual-
“see which drive has failed and remove the drive from the enclosure.”
Connected to computer?
“Then insert a new identical hard drive while the enclosure power is on, close the front door panel”..
Again- connected to computer?
The rest is just letting it rebuild. Thanks for any help, just want to make sure I do this right.
