Failed NAS200? How do I tell?

    I have had a NAS200 with a pair of mirrored 500GB hard drives for several years now. Off and on i was unable to connect but I would run the mapping utility and all would be better. Around a month or so ago I couldn't acess and re-mapping didn't help. I am remodeling a house so I didn't have time to check it out. Yesterday I finally got around to looking at it and neither hard drive LED is lit, the online utility confirms that neither drive is recognized. I tried using a utility to get the data out of a drive and onto a Windows PC but it appears the file system is not ext2/3.

    I am considering buying another NAS200 to extract the data but is there any way to confirm my existing NAS200 is the problem? It seems highly un-likely to me that both drives failed at the same time?

    Thanks in advance for any input. :frown:

    It should be possible to recover your data using SystemRescueCD.
