    What is your file system type for the HDD in master?
    Normally, if the HDD is basic then it should be detect and mount to backup NAS.
    Did you try reboot?

    You have 2 volumes with the same name. AFAIK that is just a label on the volume, but the firmware uses it to tag the volume.
    I *think* that if you edit one of the labels, and reboot the box, your problem will be solved.
    To find which file to edit you can execute (in an ssh shell)
    grep volume /i-data/????????/.system/name_label -i -H
    this will print the label files, followed by their content.

    Dear @Mijzelf and @Ijnrsi Thank you! After about 3 hours of gugling of "how to use putty" "dos commands in linux" and "how to edit file in linux" or "how to use vi" i finished it :dizzy: and WORKING!!! I think, this feature can be in UI to help BFUs like me to easily swap disks between NASes. Thank you all and have a nice day.
