I noticed that my drive wasn’t powered up, so I pushed the power button but the light only flashes a couple times and doesn’t turn on.
After taking this apart, I noticed a ‘burnt’ smell - thinking it might be the controller, I took the drives out. There is a dark spot near the SATA connection on the one drive. I then connected them individually to my desktop through an enclosure. Neither drive will fully spin up - they power up but neither seems to spin up and get recognized by my PC. The same with both of them!
Any tips to get either to spin? I’d like to double check the data on the drives and hopefully move it off - or, decide if I need to use a data recovery service to recover this.
I’d greatly appreciate any advice in working with these and accessing any data. So much for the RAID system to protect any data!
