ReadyNAS Pro will not complete volume scan

My ReadyNAS Pro will not complete a violume scan, therefore the data/volumes are not visible on the network even though you can see the storage unit itself.

I updated the firmware to Radiator 4.2.19.  Data was visible for a couple hours today, but then it tried to run a voluime scan and stalled at 70%.  I had no access through frontview so I turned the power off and rebooted.  After the reboot I tried to use frontview to reboot and run volume scan.  The reboot succeeds but volume scan will not run and data is not visible.

I've been working at this for 2 days.  Earlier in the process drive 2 seemed to be having troubles.  No problems were reported on "health" but drive 2 was resyncing, then later the numeral 2 was missing from the "box" on the unit.  I removed the drive and reset it and then it acted normal.  Data was visible for awhile, then down again.

ideas?  Thanks!

Shut the NAS down, get the drive #2 out. Connect the drive to the regular PC, run vendor diagnostic software on it (in non-destructive mode), and also do a SMART check on it. If the drive is defective or SMART looks suspicious, replace the drive. If the drive is not defective, consider the possibility that a NAS port #2 is faulty.
