Something bad happened to my LS-QL. I booted the NAS last night (I'd been getting a "Bad Fan Malfunction" error, so I had it powered down.

It immediately went into a disk check, which didn't surprise me too much. However, when it finally finished, the system shows no array configured. It was setup in RAID 5, but no array exists anymore. I'm also getting red/amber lights on all drives and a 2 long - 2 short blink code.

Is there any hope of recovering the array?

Thanks

2 long, 2 short in red -> E22 Mounting of the hard drive failed.

The system seems to switch between 22 and 21.

I can see all of the drives in the web UI and if I start to create a new array (just the first step, haven't actually created a new array) all the drives are available. So my assumption is that the drives themselves are mounted correctly. However, the web UI shows no arrays configured.

I don't know if pulling the drives and trying to mount them in another system would be fruitful, or buying another chassis and trying the drives in that?

I'm open to any and all suggestions.

Ended up recovering with UFS explorer. All my data was available and the tool quickly recovered my array and let me copy the data off to another drive. It's a really good tool, though I wish I didn't have to pay quite so much for a one-time use.
