Question: External Lacie RAID drives broken in High Sierra
I have seen random posts about this topic, thought I'd start a new topic to keep this fresh.
I finally updated my work computer to High Sierra...
Then my Lacie external drives quit mounting.
After more than 8 hours of work and research trying to get my thunderbolt drives to mount, I am giving up. There actually is NO ANSWER at this time to get my "Lacie 2Big Thunderbolt 2" drives to mount. 20 terabytes of files (video, audio, photos) that I can no longer access from my computer.
Lacie says it is an Apple problem, Apple says it is Lacie's problem.
Neither say they are actively working to provide a fix.
Apples best workaround is to copy terabytes of files from one drive to another, then break the RAID and individually update the drives with APFS, then re-stripe as RAID and recopy terabytes of files. Of course, this means that I have to buy another drive with Terabytes of available drive space, and go use someone else computer since my drives won't mount.
