A client of mine has a Buffalo LinkStation HS-DH500GL network storage drive that I had them get a few years ago because I liked them. NOW, the Seagate 500gb HDD inside has failed totally. Not able to retrieve data or anything. I have read that you cannot simply insert a new hard drive in there that you have to have a Linux partition on there from the mfr. Don't have that. Just so happens that another client I worked with has the same exact drive so I borrowed it to clone.
So, using Acronis I cloned the drive but it "finished with errors". I tried putting in back in the case and starting it up but still getting the flashing red light on front indicating unrecognizable drive.
Anyone have experience with these? How can I clone the disk exactly as is without errors? Thanks for your help!
