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

    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 :)
