Recover Data From Synology Network Attached Storage

SYNOLOGY NAS HARD DRIVE

I have a Synology 5RAID hard drive which is giving me some trouble. At first, the 3rd disk in the array failed completely, and I had to take it out and rebuild the whole array, using a new disk. While I was in the process of rebuilding, another one of the old disks crashed. I cannot get disk 3 to talk to me at all, it will not even respond when attached to a separate SATA cord. However, the other disk which crashed will give me a SMART, and when I tried to recover the files using a program, I received the message that there were ‘too many bad sectors’ so the data could not be recovered. While I am running one of the recovery programs, it will stop suddenly after it passes a certain mark. On each occasion, the drive will make a ticking sound, and the program will produce some kind of exclamation mark. I am not able to clone either of the drives, as I just get i/o errors. I think at this point it is too late for either device, but I am hoping that yourselves can help me!

SYNOLOGY NAS HARD DRIVE

I have a Synology NAS hard drive which seems to have crashed. I was doing some copying, and I noticed that one of the drives seemed to be spinning in a different time to the others, or it was spinning more noisily. I was going to look at it as soon as the copying was finished, but all of a sudden the hard drive just crashed completely. Even the light went out. I managed to get the Synology NAS to reboot, having to press the ON button by hand until it shut down fully. I could see the NAS on the computer when it rebooted, and I can see two out of the three drives I have in the array. The other is a large drive, a 1TB disk, which has not been recognised by the PC, and is not available through CHKDSK. I have tried to run an MHDD check on it, and am getting a lot of blank spaces where my data should be. It found one file, which I opened, but it contains two lines of computerburble, and then nothing.
