Sorry if this is the wrong area of the forum and also if this has been answered in another part of the forum (I haven't been able to spot another discussion of this point.

I have an old LS1 and last week we had a power failure. When the power came back on the LS was giving me 6 red blinks indicating hard drive troubles. I have tried resetting with the function button but the system just will not see the unit. OK, so nothing lost. The two hard drives are in a raid. I'll take one of the drives out and put it into a hard drive caddy (They are SATA drives). The windows system still will not see either of the drives. Now I'm getting desperate. I have lost the Buffalo utilities to try and access the network controller on board the NAS unit and now don't know if I can get the data back.

Does anyone have any suggestions about how I can get at my data?

Thanks, Ben

Retry the access to the disk with a Linux Live-CD.
Take this for example:http://www.sysresccd.org/SystemRescueCd_Homepage
Your data is located at the LAST partition on the disk, which
should be formatted as XFS.

Btw. Windows can't deal with ext2 or ext3 or XFS or any other Linux
specific filesystem.

OK, I'll give it a try. But it will not be this week due to heavy work loads.
