I have a 4TB Sharespace configured to Raid 5. A couple of days ago, it stopped showing itself on the network,
still returning a ping, but invisible to the network, what ever I tried.
I contacted the local WD dealer, and they said I still have Warranty, and they can replace the entire thing. The problem is that I really need some of the data on it, the disks are probably healthy, but there is no way I can access the data.
A technician told me it’s possible to extract data, by pulling out the disks, and connecting them one by one, straight to a PC, then Burn a boot CD of Data LifeGuard Diagnostics, and use this utility to extract data from single mounted raid 5 disks…
I’ve read about Data LifeGuard Diagnostic, and it seems it’s only for testing the disks ?!
is there a way (assuming the disks are healthy) to extract some data from them?
