Hope among you, out there, is somebody who can help me recover the data I had on a “TWO MONTH OLD MY BOOK LIVE”.
The story goes like this: I had issues upgrading the Firmware to the last version, I’ve been contacting support for it and got a list of steps to follow. Last step was to reset my NAS from the button behind. As soon as I’ve done this, my NAS could not be seen/found on the network anymore.
In the end, WD Support allowed me to open the casing and recover the data. Attempting to do that under Windows 7 64Bit, the data recovery failed due to the fact that it was asking me to format the partitions to be able to use them. Not really an option for me since I want to recover the data.
Downloaded and installed UBUNTU 64Bit and surprise again, The hard drive cannot be mounted, says something about a “bad block” making the mounting impossible. Running Gparted under Ubuntu, shows clearly that there is data on the partition and that is EXT4 as format, but does not allow any data recovery when you try to do an “Attempt Data Restore” (or something like that, I don’t remember exactly).
The thing is, that the hard drive has also a specific partitioning, this new GPT used to replace the old MBR and its limitations over 2TB.
So, to cut it short, is there anybody who can help/advice me me what I can do to recover the data? I would very much appreciate it.
