Hello,

I had D-Link DNS323 NAS 2 Bay enclosure with 1.5TB WD HDDs setup in Raid1 and worked very well last 6 years. Unfortunately last week the D-Link NAS enclosure failed itself.  Then I bought D-Link 320 NAS and slot with my old hard drives. It won’t work. Please assist with this issue to recover the data.

I bought new 2TB Seagate drive and decided to re-build  with one of the old drive , however I am not sure how to rebuild the drive.
Regards,

J Peter

Your actions may have already inadvertently caused a loss of data.
You should not have plugged-in both drives into the new NAs, The action may have lead to them being initialized.

After you connected a drive, and booted the nas, did it come up to be administered via the web or using the utility? Did it  reflect that it detected the existing data/config or did you use the option to load the comfig from the drive, or did you try to reassemble the RAID 1 volume without initilizing it?

Using an external enclosure with a linux (live CD is also possible) is a way to attempt to access the data without writing modifying it.

What fried on the Old nas the power supply?
