Hi,

Can anyone point me at instructions on how to replace the drive on an LS VL2.0 if the original drive is dead please?
(I have searched the forum(s) and the web but can't find an answer to the problem)

Many thanks.

Open the case (look for sites like this for disassemble
description: http://www.yamasita.jp/linkstation/2010/10/101001_post_285.html).
Replace the disk with an empty one (no partitions).
Look for matching TFTP package for your box type.
Follow TFTP instructions.
Use LSUpdater twice; first to partition and second
time to install firmware (so you need to use the TFTP
procedure two times).

Ich will es mal ausdrücklich anbieten, obwohl das natürlich immer möglich ist.

Es würde mich freuen, wenn Jemand mein Howto ins Englische übersetzen würde und hier veröffentlicht.
Dort werden viele kleine Problemstellen erklärt und umschifft.

Many thanks for the help people.

Ended up following this guide.

The process given in the guide worked perfectly first time.

What gave me cause for worry was that the guide talks about, and gives links for, the LS-WVL.
As far as I know, that's different to the LS-VL. VOLLEMELK did give a link to an ftp folder to go to to get other versions from, but no matter how I tried to get there the connection was refused.
In the end I thought, 'Sod it - give it a go'

I am now one happy, file restoring bunny :)

P.S. - Only had to use TFTP once...
