One day I was using it all fine, then after 30 to 60 mins I “tried again” to access back to my folder and it said something like I did not have access and should ask the administrator.
The device was running, the power button was on with the blue color ring turned on. Then wanted to reboot it and held the power button down for a few seconds and it wasn’t shutting down. Left it on for some mins (don’t remember how long but less than 30mins) went back to the device and it wouldn’t shut down, I had to disconnect the cable to shut it down.
Waited few minutes (like 5 more or less) powered it on, and left it there.
Well… It never got back on working properly, the blue ring won’t turn on anymore and I heard the hard drive doing some funny noises :smileyvery-happy: I knew this all couldn’t be good signal.
So I’m wondering if there’s something I can do, like maybe connect it through SATA cables to my PC as a “slave” hdd?
I haven’t powered and won’t power it, I’m scared to lose the data in it.
Plus the reason for the hdd to be broken I’d say is because of the heat here. It’s very warm. (incase this can tell you something hehe) apart from being very old and being powered on 365 days a year since late 2007.
Don’t think these pictures will do much but incase they are needed, here they are.
I don’t know what to do, what should I do?
