Question about Iomega NAS 200d 160 GB Hard Drive Array
Hi, hope you guys can help my hard drive with all my backups suddenly stopped working. I reinstalled my network and suddenly it was not working. It says that the device has only 7 megabytes of space and is full, and my folders are not displayed. I tried reseting the device twice and no luck, I tried returning to factory settings (without erasing data) and no luck) I was on the phone with the guys from Iomega and still they cuould not figure it out :-(
Any Ideas? Please let me know
I had a similar problem with an iomega DHD250-NS network storage device.
After a sudden power outage none of the files on the drive were available, and it only displayed a makecgi file.
I removed the internal IDE drive and installed it as a secondary on a Windows based PC. I then used the Linux file explorer (explorer2fs) to restore all of my files onto the Windows based PC.
I then reset the drive, and copied all of my files back on to it.
It worked for me, I hope it helps you.

Reinstalled your network? I'll bet your network setting change gave your computer a new system identifier... and that the Iomega has data encryption set up to prevent anyone other than the original computer name from reading the data. What it sounds like is that when you are trying to connect to it, the Iomega is telling you that you can create a new 7Mb LUN, which is probably allocated as overhead space. Can you connect directly to the Iomega and turn off LUN security and data encryption? I'm not certain how the LUNs are created on this unit or if additional data encryption software was used, but it could be that the LUNs are set up with encryption as well. If the data encryption has it locked down to only present to the original device key, you may have no other choice but to blow away your data and start fresh. If this network hard drive is your only disaster recovery plan, I would suggest that you add a tape device and do an incremental back up this drive daily to a rotating pool of media... and a weekly full backup of everything on your network. A network hard drive is only meant to be a central storage location where multiple hosts can read/write data. The tape backup can then be used to recover your data in case of a disaster... like you've got.
