SOS my cloud home duo stuck "upgrading" and not sure what to do


I have My Cloud Duo, it has been working great until 3 days ago I could not access to it, I went to and I got this message


We have made some improvements to My Cloud Home. As part of this process your device is:

Completely rebuilding and improving how your content is stored
Performing a series of reboots, pleas do not un plug

This may take a while"

It s been 3 days and nothing, I still cannot access to my data.

Any suggestions or anybody has experienced something similar?

Dear Mr. …,
Thank you for your patience.
After a thorough examination of your support case, we would like to confirm that the device is defective. Both hard drives failed.
We regret the loss of data.
Since there is important data on the device, we would recommend that you attempt data recovery from a specialized data recovery company.

Now i have to pay for a data recovery, because WD delivered a broken Update to my MyCloud Home. I don’t even want to know, how much this Data Recovery would cost, I definitely won’t do that.
I will never buy something from this Crappy Company!
