After frequent power outages, my WDMYCLOUD (Gen1) (04.x) stopped working. The LED at the front is SOLID WHITE. I can sense the hard drive running when I touch the device. I did the basic checks, such as replacing the ethernet cable, connecting directly to my laptop using a patch ethernet cable, trying the 4 second reset and 40 second reset but nothing worked.
Going over the some of the threads I assumed my device was bricked. I opened the case and connected the hard drive directly to my laptop.
My laptop runs CentOS 8 and was able to detect the hard drive automatically. I opened GParted and see that it’s unallocated.
Please help how to proceed further. Is the hard drive bricked? The steps to unbrick were for Windows. Are they any guides for CentOS 8?
