My MyBook was working fine until last night there was a power failure. When the power came back on so did the MyBook, but when trying to access it from Windows, the file system was extremely slow – like, 5-10 minutes to open a folder. Then, the files in that folder were visible with Explorer, with sizes and modification dates, etc, but trying to open the files came back with unknown format or permission denied from the applications.
However, I CAN PUTTY/SSH to the MyBook from the PC’s, and then all the files are there, cd’ing into directories works fine, and the text files I cat are all fine.
I’ve tried rebooting the drive several times, unmounting the drive from my PC’s, upgrading the WD Discovery software, etc, to no avail.
I assume something happened to the file system, but I can’t figure it out, or how to repair it. Any suggestions?
