- Mother flipping Lacie NAS
Well, the inevitable has eventually happened – My 1TB Lacie Network Space has finally died, which considering the interface has never worked well, is probably a blessing.
I have got the disk out the the enclosure, and popped it in a USB caddy, and plugged it in to my PC. It has several partitions in disk manager, none of which windows appears to be able to read or mount. What are my chances of getting my data back (or if nothing else, confirming what I hope, in that there wasn’t anything I don’t have elsewhere)?
The disk itself appears fine, it looks to be just the Lacie NAS caddy which was taken out by last night’s power spike.
If it helps, I also have a Mac I can plug the USB caddy into, the PC was just first choice as it’s what the USB enclosure’s already plugged intoPosted 5 years agoStonerSubscriberPosted 5 years ago
I had a similar issue running Raid 1 on a Galaxy MGB (piece of junk) which died. The drives were OK though. When i took the drives out and placed them in my PC I could see them in device manager but they weren’t visible in my computer. I searched the web for anyone who had a similar problem and didn’t find much but i did find this site and thought i would share my experience in hope it may help someone. I’m not a tech whiz and know nothing about linux so i was willing to pay for a solution. I ended up finding and using a program called UFS Explorer version 3 ( http://ufsexplorer.com/download.php ) . It gave me access to all of my files and allowed me to copy and paste all the data. For the headaches it saved me i thought it was very reasonably priced.
Hmm. Mac won’t mount it either, and the one piece of software (fs-driver) I tried didn’t like Win7.
Off to bed now so will try some of the other ideas tomorrow. I’ve an old laptop running XP somewhere so will dig that out and try fs-driver first.
Any other ideas much appreciatedPosted 5 years agofinishthatSubscriber
It will most likely be a unix – Linux filesystem.Posted 5 years ago
Download a linux live cd version or Ubuntu – boot off the cd and
mount the partitions, mount them in read-only mode if you can to avoid
messing thinks up, you may need to run fsck – file system check in order to mount the file systems .
