#1

Hi everyone,
the blue led on my wdcloud has been flashing 3 days and i can not access the device at all.
i called wd support and there solutions were not helping at all, restating router, 40s reset…not working at all.
All i want is saving the data on the disk ,i do not care if i have to void the warranty crack it take out the hard disk.
or if there is any better solution to save the data.
thanks.

hi cat0w,

thanks for your reply.
yes I am having a gen2 device.
my device has been having this blue blinking for days. I did some internet search says it is system checking (https://support.wdc.com/knowledgebase/answer.aspx?ID=15036)and could take days howevre I need to replace a new one if it is still not working after 7 days.
well, I do not want to get it replaced nor do I want to lose any stores data.
and I am worried this continuing blue blinking status will corrupt the data I stored in my device and make the future data saving impossible.
are there any other ways I can do to save and copy the data stored on the device?
it is ok if doing the data saving will have to void my warranty.

many thanks.
