I am using a a Ready NAS storage in which I set up some LUNs. I mounted one in my email server and another in my backup server. It was working great however few days I go I configured a server with windows Server 2008  and formatted a new LUNs with NTFs (which was previously created on the NAS) surprisingly  after that my other 2 LUNs got corrupted. I tried this:

1. Mount the partition again

However I got this message:
"mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc1,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail or so
"

2. Tried fsck

One or more block group descriptor checksums are invalid.

By the way, the partitions where formatted using ext4. Besides, I got snapshots from the NAS.

Please help me recover this data, its very important!.

try mounting them by specifying ext2 or ext3 and see if this works.. Many times this happens with journals.

Check this once.

No luck :-(. Got this:

[257045.733027] EXT4-fs (sde1): ext4_check_descriptors: Checksum for group 0 failed (38096!=32584)
[257045.733032] EXT4-fs (sde1): group descriptors corrupted!

iSCSI is never supposed to be directly accessed by more than one PC.  Other PC's using it should use a share setup on that PC.  Accessing an iSCSI device from more than one causes corruption.
Can you still get to the ReadyNAS remote interface and what is its model number?

I even tried creating a LUN from a snapshot (which are created daily), however I cannot access it.
