    • Attemped to format filesystem for drive and now it no longer appears

      I have a 4TB drive in my NAS and I could originally see it on the list of drives to create filesystems from
      however after I tried to create an EXT4 filesystem out of it I no longer see it in the list.

      Also seems to have disappeared from my fstab and fdisk. Anyway to probe for this drive? or perhaps it is
      in some state that I can delete in order to see it again?
    • In fdisk I am expecting a 3rd drive that is a 4TB Sata HDD

      It looks like it's came unplugged (or died VERY quickly...). I'd open the case, double check your connections..
      Air Conditioners are a lot like PC's... They work great until you open Windows.
