Lightning struck my house two days ago. Lost the AC, a Netgear switch, a Tablo, an Epson Eco-Tank and even found the treadmill running by itself in the garage.
But my poor DX4000.
The fan won’t even come on. I’ve tested the output of the DC power brick and it’s fine. So I don’t think there’s any coming back from this. A couple of faint red lights above the drives (3 out of 4). LCD shows nothing.
I’ve looked on eBay for matching part numbers. I find four bay units, but their part numbers are different.
The goal is to put the four drives (all of which power up and access the heads, I can hear them) in a new DX4000 and attempt to recover the contents. Lots of family photos, etc.
So this is a question for WD support. Can I put these drives in anything other than a WDBLGT0120KBK and expect it to work if all the drives are intact?
Barring that, I’d like to recover the contents some other way. Is there a software solution, or recovery tool someplace?
