I’ve got a bricked MyBook LIve 2TB. It started clicking and fairly quickly stopped working and showed a solid red light. I can’t access the UI. The lights on the back indicates network access is fine.
I’ve tried to debrick by MyBook Live as the run through here: http://mybookworld.wikidot.com/mybook-live-debricking-guide-osx-and-windows
This seems essentially the same directions as this thread, just via mac+ubuntu.
It all seemed to work, but when I removed the HDD from the USB caddie and put it back into the NAS, I go the same red light, click and couldn’t access the UI.
I tried changing the power supply to a different one (with the same ratings), the click disappears, but I still get the red light and can’t access the UI. The lights on the back indicates network access is fine.
When in the USB caddie, I can see files in the Ubuntu file browser, and the disk recognises it has some 500GB+ of data. But I can’t find my data, only what appear to be system folders/files.
As far as I’m aware the HDD wasn’t encrypted, but was partitioned into if I remember correctly 4 partitions, only 1 of which I really want to recover. I see one partition when accessing via the USB caddie, and this seems to report the right amount of storage used.
What am I missing?
Do I need to plug the disk into a new NAS enclosure? If so which one will work?
I’d be more than content to lose the NAS functionality if there is a way to access the files through a non-NAS enclosure if that makes things easier.
Also: Is it worth pursuing this further if I think most of the valuable data is backed up elsewhere, but am not 100% certain?
