Default IT/Linux Experts!! [Pls Help] Trying to recover data on a NAS Drive

Long story short:

- I have a Lacie 2TB NAS drive, drives are RAID 1 mirrored.
- Mainboard took a crap
- Drive is under warranty but Lacie won't warrant data recovery, only unit replacement
- I know at least 1 of the 2 drives is fine and would like to recover the data on them
- I also know the Lacie runs a modified version of Linux OS
-The drives partitions/files were all password protected, which I have the L/P of course...

Is there anyway I can connect one of the SATA drives to my desktop to recover the data? I know how to connect them but would it be encrypted or even make sense to a Windows 7 machine? The recovery company's I received quotes from want $600+ Ridiculous!

I wouldn't bother trying to hook up the drive under windows...
If you knew what kind of filesystem the drive uses, it shouldn't be too hard
to attach the disk to a machine running linux and then mounting it.
Does it mention the type of filesystem in the manual?

The "safe"/"sure" way is to borrow or wait for a replacement NAS box and rebuild the array on that. I'm afraid I don't know if the RAID setup depends on the hardware or software on which it was created or not.

True but this present 2 problems:

1. Lacie wants the old drives back.
2. Lacie no longer manufactures this model and would replace it with a new equivalent.

And they likely won't honor the warranty if you opened up the case and yanked the
disks out of there to try hook them up directly...

Looks like your fooked then.
Either screw your data or screw your warranty, I guess.

Only goes to show what a stupid design such a "sealed" RAID box is.
Where's the point in that anyway, if you have to have a backup of the backup?

The system isn't sealed, each drive pulls out from the back with the twist of a lock.



The point in a RAID 1 array is having 2 mirrored discs. Traditionally hard-drives fail more often than the system board. When one fails you swap a new drive in and it auto mirrors the new drive. Unfortunately the board failed for me and I am looking for a way to extract the data.

If you can pull the disk without voiding the warranty, well then hook it up to a linux box already.
