I have been a happy owner of a 2tb My Book world edition 2 for approx 2 years. Apart from it being slow I couldn’t fault it. It just quietly sat there on the shelf making sure that backups were done. I also used the drive to store ALL family photos. The setup was raid 1.
Approx 2 weeks ago I noticed that the drive vanished from the network. I went to have a look at it and found the bottom quarter of the white light bar flashing. I tried to reset with no success. I changed power supply and nothing. I’ve come to terms with the fact that the unit has packed it in.
What I am wondering is how to get to my photos on the drives and recover them? I know that My Book runs on linux and I guess the drives are formatted in a different and foreign to me file system. Any help on how to recover the photos would be very appreciated.
