    • Unable to reconnect after power outage

      Hello all, not sure where to put this but here are the specs.

      Raspberry Pi 3

      3 hard drives connected via usb.

      Every time the power goes out, I lose the server setup. I have to re-instal the entire server, remount the drives, recreate the shares. Go back in to windows and re-map the drives.

      Is there any way of just backing up the flash drive and on a power outage just restoring from the backup?

      Thanks in advance

      Eric

      Sounds like a counterfeit SD card faking higher capacity than it has. So all your writes go to nowhere but as long as the RPi is powered the stuff lives in the filesystem/page cache. Once you reboot everything has gone.

      The readme.txt at the download location points to this thread where it's written: It's strongly recommended to always test your SD card with either F3 or H2testw first to check for counterfeit/broken cards.

      BTW: 3 disks connected to an RPi are 3 too much :)
