I have a MyCloud 4TB running for 3 years (P/N WDBCTL0040HWT-10, should be gen 2) and just found it dead last week. it showed blinking blue light for around 1 minute then turned to steady red. I did reset multiple times and it is still dead.
I opened the case (already passed warranty date) and connected the HD (WD red) to a PC. with help of Ext2fsd, I can view the hard drive from my Windows PC. There are 6 logical partitions shown (Drive E, F, G, H, I, J), I found all my data on drive J and I can access them.
From what I learned from this forum, the unbrick method seems destroy all existing data. Is my understanding right? if yes, is there anyway I can rebuild the system without losing the files. There are about 3TB of data and it is painful to move to another hard drive.
Thanks in advance
