I have a striped storage space with a 4 drives in it. One of the drives is a USB 3.0 Seagate drive which died recently. I wasn't able to make any progress with it in the USB enclosure (and it is out of warranty), so I pulled the disk out. I have it in a temporary Thermaltake Blacx enclosure now and I can test it and data seems to read off of it fine according to the SeaTools generic tests.
My problem is that windows doesn't recognize the drive as the 4th drive in the storage space. Probably because it isn't a "Seagate Expansion Desk USB Device" anymore.
Is there a way to manually change the configuration to replace the old drive Id with the one presented by the shucked drive?
The data isn't particularly important, so I don't have a backup. It'd be very convenient if this is possible to fix though.
The storage space is in Simple mode. Meaning their version of JBOD/Raid 0. So there is no parity.
