Question about Iomega StorCenter (33349)

Iomega Storcenter changed RAID after restart now reads 0gb used of 0gb available

After shutting down the storcenter for a weekend I started it back up on to find that the RAID setting had changed from 1 (mirroring) to 0 (striping). Now the drive says that it has 0gb of used space from 0gb of available space. I've called tech support but all they say to do is reformat the drives. However, there's data that I'd like to get off of the unit? Any suggestions? Do you think I can access the drive through a crossover cable? If so, how do I do this? Thanks.

Most likely the controller on the unit has failed. That is why you are getting the 0GB 0GB when you look at it. The data is still on the drives. If you had mirror, remove one of the drives and install if you can into a PC and retrieve your data. Then call to have the unit replaced.

Hmm... you could try removing the drives from the NAS device and plug them into either a SATA or EIDE cable in your PC. That way you can at least try to get your data off. If they were truly set for mirroring, then both drives should have the same data... so if one doesn't work, try the other. It may be a failed drive has the backend loop hung up.

I have a 4 computer network with an attached IOMEGA 250G Storcenter. on one system the drive suddenly went offline and I cannot get it back. it works fine on the other systems

I used the Windows network wizard and rebuilt the network. when it completed I was able to see the drive and map it. Apparently something happened in the network configuration.
