How can I recover data from a crashed HDD in my Buffalo Linkstation 250?
Posted on 2006-10-22
I have had a Linkstation 250 that seems to have crashed (I called Buffalo Tech support and they verrified that may have crashed and recommended removing from the enclosure since the waranty has expired). I have removed from the case, mounted in a desktop and installed EXT2IFS to attempts to read the EXT3 file system on the HDD. I now hear the HDD attempting to spin up, but no luck. Also, the system cannot ID the disk. I attempted KNOPPIX, but I am not too familiar with that system; the only thing I could verify is that KNOPPIX also couldn't open the disk. How can I recover the data on the disk?
