Buffalo Linkstation Data Recovery

We've had a major problem today where we had a Buffalo linkstation Duo (LS-WXL) have disk errors, we spoke to Buffalo who advised that there was nothing more they could do after we tried to flash the firmware (it would only start in emergency mode).

We've removed the disks and hooked them up to a PC, using UFS explorer we can see the partitions on the disks but not the data. We believe the disks were set up as RAID 0 which further complicates things.

Any advice of what to do next would be well received, the data on this NAS is very important and there's no recent backup.

Get the trial of http://www.hdtune.com 's professional version and use it to see which drive is failing.  Look on the health tab for Reallocated Sectors.
Get another, like sized drive.  Connect it and the failing drive as second and third drive's, then use Rawcopy to clone the failing drive ( http://www.roadkil.net/program.php/P22/Raw%20Copy )  Make sure you choose the physical drives from the lower listing and, if you choose another cloning program, make sure it is doing a complete sector copy.
Once it is done, put the Buffalo back together and pray their utilities will fix any damage caused by the failing drive.

We tried some of this software. In the end had to use Data recovery service.
