Solid/static Orange Status LED

Solid/static Orange Status LED

A. Great question! Here are the meanings of the status lights

  • Green Static Status LED
    • Volume Normal
  • Orange Static Status LED
    • Available volume space < 1GB
    • Available volume space < 1 %
  • Orange Blinking Status LED
    • Volume degraded or crashed
    • DSM not installed
  • Green/Orange Alternating Status LED
    • No internal disk
  • No Color / Status LED Off 
    • HDD Hibernation

In your instance, it would appear that volume space is less than 1GB or less than 1% of volume space is available.

I hope this helps! 🙂
