Good morning, WD Community.
I’m hoping someone here can answer a question I have. A few days ago, my MyCloud Home Duo suddenly had the fan kick on, spool down, and then the front light just kept blinking (not the breathing or heartbeat effect). It appears that it will no longer connect to my network (the MAC address no longer shows up in my routing table). I have contacted WD support on this but I’m afraid they will not be able to do anything for me as it is out of warranty.
I can, however, physically access the drives that are inside it. My question is this: since these drives are in a RAID 1 configuration, can I put them into another external enclosure OR put them into my tower and access the data that is on them? My concern is that the data will be wiped if I do that or that WD uses some proprietary system that will preclude me from accessing them outside of a MyCloud Home Duo unit.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
