Buddy, woke up. Put a Yongnuo YN-622C onto the 1DXii, put a Yongnuo YN-622C onto a 580EXii. Turned all 4 units on. Pushed the
shutter and the flash fired. Went into menu of the 1DXii for Speelight control. I was in Manual on the flash. Went over to power in
the camera's flash menu, dialed down the power and watched on the 580EXii's screen as the power went down.
Now when I use the camera's menu to switch the flash from Manual to ETTL I see on the flash screen that it has gone to ETTL
BUT a box comes up on the camera menu saying the flash is off. Does not that I can tell stop the flash from going into ETTL.

Also I have not received from Amazon the Yongnuo 1X YN622C-TX Controller yet. It has shipped. Supposedly it will allow me to
dial in different power for each flash.

OK hope that helps.

Thanks for the feedback.

Experienced the strangest, catastrophic hard drive failure over the weekend. Fortunately, it wasn't on the HD that 95% of my photos are stored on. I built my computer 4 years ago with dual HD in RAID 1, thinking the mirroring will protect the data against HD failure, allowing me to swap and replace if/when issues arise. I did not ever expect that BOTH drives in the RAID will fail at the exact same time, and seemingly the same fashion. What are the odds of that happening, ever? I should go buy a lotto ticket.

Anyway, I was already contemplating setting up a NAS and this hammered it home. In the meantime, time to send the HD out to a recovery center to see what they can retrieve for me. :D :( :)

Power spike perhaps?

Not sure. This pair of HD (drive F:) is the only local disk affected on my desktop. It appears that the head on both drives failed in similar fashion. It just swivels and can't seem to read anything off the plates. Head wasn't/isn't stuck. The data on the affected disks, while I'd like to retrieve as much as possible, isn't crucial so I was adventuresome enough to crack them open. Didn't mess with the plates so they're not of phase, which is why I'm still attempting to send them out to a recovery center.

4 years ago, I vaguely remember locking up a hard drive shortly after importing photos via Lightroom onto that specific drive, but also accessing CF card with Windows Explorer and transferring videos simultaneously.

This time, I had also imported photos via Lightroom onto my E: drive, but had transferred videos off the same CF card with Windows Explorer to my F: drive (ones that later failed). I was able to access and view the videos off my F: drive just fine so I feel that the failure didn't occur at that moment of transfer. But later, I did move some photos to my F: drive (as I was organizing my images) and that's when my F: drive started making the weird noises.

The commonality is Lightroom in all this but, still, I don't really see why/how that would have caused the death of my harddrives. What surprised me is that both drives failed at exactly the same time. I was under the belief that the purpose of setting drives up in RAID 1 is to prevent such things. :D But maybe as you pointed out, perhaps something did spike during read/write process and because both drives were mirroring one another and reading/writing at same time during the spike, it crippled both. *sigh*

That's one of the issues with a Raid 1 setup, if the drives were purchased and installed at the same time then there's a higher chance that both drives can die at the same time. This is because the workload is the same for both drives.

Thay said, it's about time I replace the drives in my raid 1 setup. :-| -?

Julian,

Best wishes for data recovery! The chances of getting your data back seems pretty high. This is said with a friend-to-friend tone, but you should still always back up your RAID 1, preferably as part of an off-site backup strategy by either hauling a drive to and from work or utilizing the cloud. As you unfortunately experienced, RAID 1 can fail.

Again, sorry to hear this and my fingers are crossed that you can get the data back. Do let us know how things turn out!

Cheers,
Bryan

Thanks. It's not the end of the world if they can't recover it. But I have stuff like my standalone LR 6 install file on there that it'd be nice should I ever have to blow-up my computer and start a fresh install. And phone/videos from wife's smartphone of the kids that I had "backed up" that well... is currently inaccessible. :lol:

But yeah, I may look into CrashPlan or something. I'm a little uncomfortable with having data up in someone else's cloud since Snowden gets to view it. But I guess such is the digital world we live in. :D

Not sure it's a good idea to open a drive if you fancy having it work again surely? A spec of dust is like a boulder on a road, given the scales involved.

Writing workload is the same, but some implementations are a bit more clever about reading from one drive more than the other in other to load one drive more. That said, it's not uncommon to read from both in RAID0-like stripes for better performance, so that would load both similarly.

Bummer to lose two drives together though. Even RAID3 or 5 wouldn't survive two disks going down - that needs RAID6.

Well, the noises it was making, I thought that perhaps I just had a stuck head (seems common with the particular brand of HD that I had bought 4 years ago). So my hope was unstick it, get as much data off of it, and move on. However, turns out it wasn't a stuck head issue so the joke was on me.

:D

I got my camera 10 days ago but had to upgrade lightroom 6, then upgrade to a 64bit machine to get lightroom to work, upgraded to windows 10 pro, then upgraded to lightroom 6.6. what a pain, but happily now I can get back to the fun stuff. a couple of the usual suspects. I also posted the caracara in the birds forum

I upgraded from a Canon 5D Mark II, it was quite an improvement.
