    I have 4 hard drives and its not booting, i think two of the drives are faulty and i need to save the data on them.



    Yes it is a netgear NAS NV.



    thanks

    The drives have been set up in X-Raid, so i would still like to salvage the informatin on the two faulty drives. I would like to know if that is possible.



    I was told by a technician that the drives were both faulty, i had only found one of them faulty.



    Can anyone help with salvaging the data on the drives, it is data i really need to get back.



    thanks

    How many hard drive do you have in your NAS?



    Here I assume that you are talking about the Netgear/Infrant ReadyNAS NV? Am I right?

The drives are set up in "X-Raid"...does that make it any more likely that the data can be salvaged...???

OK, first thing first. The OS of the ReadyNAS NV is NOT on the hard disks but on an embeded flash memory. So a bad HD should not prevent you from booting the unit. Have you tried using the RAIDar software to detect and connect to your ReadyNAS?

Secondly, if you were using all fours disks as one big volume, unfortunately, chances are very slim that you can salvage any data because the system is tolerant for only one disk failure (RAID 5). Having two disks fail is a very bad luck!

Hope this helps.

    With 4 drives, X-RAID is using RAID 5 redundancy. This means that it will tolerate only one drive failure. The question is: How many drive does the NV report as defunct? If it is only one, then you may try to replace the defective drive and the NV should sych every thing back up during the boot process (this may take several hours).

I have a usr8700 NAS running raid 5. I had a drive fail and now I cannot access any of the data. I am researching the options of recovering the data. I found a few products and service options but don't...


Hello, I don't know your particular NAS, but a raid 5 is able to survive a single drive failure and continue to supply data ok because it recreates it from the remaining drives plus the parity drive. But, if you then get a subsequent drive failing before you've replaced the original failed drive, (and restored the data to it, which is/should be automatic) then it's really bad news. So, if you definitely have only had a single failed drive then you should just get an alert to warn you to take remedial action- ie, replace the drive. If the NAS has stopped supplying data then you may have got a multiple-drive failure situation. Just a general note of caution when working on a raid array: Some raid systems are clever and you can switch your drives around, some aren't and you can 'break' these raid sets just by swapping the positions of 2 drives, which is too easy to do if they're not labelled and you're trying to faultfind ...so unless you're absolutely certain, just label your drives (and take a photo) before starting to swap drives about. Anyway,good luck with your troubleshooting.
Regards

Good morning. I have installed in my Company a Iomega nas model 450R. This morning after a reboot,it seems it can't find the boot disk and the nas asks for a operating system restore or go back to factory...


It seems that the main hard drive in this server either went bad, had a windows corruption or that one of the internal connections inside this server went bad.

You would need to check on all three of these areas to make sure 1) the main hard drive is functional (which is my first suspision so check the hard drive for errors and if it fails you would need to do a data transfer to a new hard drive). 2) use your windows software to repair the dammaged registry that may have been corrupted somehow (only do this if the main server's hard drive passes its hardware tests).

You would need to run the original os but I would need to know which one you are using to guide you more to solving the regisrty issue.

3) Hopefully tis server has a warrenty and it may need replacing if all else is working.

Try #1 which is the highest supected for failed hard drive issue (remember if discovered that main hd is bad you may need to perform a data transfer immediatly and replace with a new hard drive.

any other questions please write back with status :)

You may use data recovery software to see if you can rescue the files. It may unable to recover all the files, but at least most of them.
