Remember that the File System of the WD My Book World is EXT3, this means that any Recovery Software you are willing to try should support that File System.

No comfort, but sounds as if your back-up strategy is flawed! Your back up server should hold a copy of your data and not become the sole source. Your “original” data should be retained on your PC/Laptop or at least archived to some other storage media if you run out of space - CD/DVD discs, flash drives or simple plug-in USB drive. Using MBW as a NAS for easy data access and streaming is fine, but using it  as a single source of data is very risky. Hope you get some joy from the recovery software.
