I have a Quantum snap server that died. I need to know if there is a way to acess the data myself with some kind of software. It was configured as a raid 1 system. Quantum is no longer in business and the unit is about 10 years old. The drive are running  but  the power supply or mother board has stopped working in the server.
I took the drives to a data recovery service and they wanted 1000's of $$ to recovery data which I can not afford. Any info as to how to access the data would be helpful. I believe it works a s a lynx system but quantum put some kind to block to access the drive through normal recovery software. Please advise. My entire business database is on the drives and I had it set as raid system but figured the unit itself would die and not have access to the data itself.

There is a company that I have had sucess with in the past.  They help with a small SNAP 2200 I had that failed.  There is no charge if they cannot retrieve any data.
