Power outage...unit stuck on red light led..any hope?

had a brief power outage, now the Mybook is inaccessible and stuck on a red light led.

  1. I don’t have SSH , lost it during that firmware fiasco some time ago

  2. I have backups, but they’re a week old

what can I do to get my data off? I have no issue taking it apart, it’s way past warranty anyway…
