    Since more than 4 years I'm using a NAS200 (firmware V3.4R79) with 2 separate internal disk drives. Suddenly, yesterday, one of both was not reachable in my network. The statusinformation says the disk is not formatted (while the last 4 years it was in use). How come? And wat can I do about it to get back my data?

    It's possible that your hard disk went bad and is not responding anymore. Whatever you do, if you try to reformat it, the data that was on there will be gone.

    You can use SystemRescueCD to access the data from a PC if you have a way to connect it to that PC directly (e.g. a USB to SATA adapter or an eSATA cable)

    I replaced the bad-disk with a new one. The NAS is functioning again. Fortunately I had a recent backup from the bad disk. I restored it. Perhaps I miss some very recent files. I'm gonna try out SystemRescueCD.
