I'm working with a TS Pro II in my HomeRack for some time now (RAID 5). Until now, I never had any problems.
Since yesterday the TS suddenly got extremely slow. Read/Write Speed ist down to about 500-800kb /s
I still can access all my Data and although every Disc now appears to be OK, I got the following automated email after yesterdays USB Backup.
DISK Error Notification
HDD error occured
Disk(s) the error occurred:Disk 2
(sdb) READ sector:1283501 count:4
Disk writing error
RAID drive error will be repaired automatically.
Continuous Back-up is recommended.
TeraStation PROName: FILESERVER_2 (TS-RHTGL/R5)

So even though my TS now tells me that everything is in order, looking at the speed I can certainly say that it's not.
My question is: What is the fasted and best way to fix this problem? Do I just replace Disc2 or is there more to this error?
Can I take out the faulty disc and still access all the data with normal speed? I need a few days to buy a new disc (would be great if I could use the TS in the mean time)
Is this maybe covered with the warenty?
