Recover Rid Disk WorldBook II

I have a Western Digital drive 500 gig, Ethernet drive that became inaccessible through any normal means.

So, I have removed the actual drive from the case and was able to hook it up USB with a SATA to USB adapter.

It is connected to another system. In the Windows Do\isk Management control panel, I can see all of the partitions, however I cannot open or explore them.

My research has told me that this drive was set up as a Software Raid 1. When I accessed it normally, it was by assigned IP and a web management tool.

The last partition is about 450 gigs and contains the data I need to recover.

Does anyone know of any programs that could do the magic? I have tried Disk Doctor NTFS to no avail.

Thank you.

Pointing out that I was mistaken about the raid focused my search a bit better and made me rethink how to solve the issue.

Since the partitions seemed to show up healthy, I took a chance and reinstalled the drive into the NAS case. After much exploration I found in their online documentation that the drive can be accessed by name if the network settings get blown away (seems this is an issue).

Once I gained access to the admin I was able to reset the network settings and regain all access.

Thanks again!
