Readynas Ultra 4

Readynas Ultra 4

My RNDU4000 has died.  Lightning strike next to the house and a power surge took out a handful of items.  I've tried a new ATX PSU modified properly to work and it does nothing, no lights.  

 

Assuming the disks are still good (haven't hooked them up to anything, but removed and labeled them 1-4) What's the easiest method of getting to the data on the four disk array?  Is there a newer model that I can stick these disks in to at least read the array?  If so what is the ideal model to look for?  I'm more than likely going to just buy a new SAN of some kind, and copy the data over to it - so it will be a temporary solution.  

 

Would the RND4000-200NAS work??

 

Is hooking the 4 disks to a Linux machine worth trying?  Will it read the data fast enough to copy them off over the network?  The data isn't super important, all large ripped Blurays and DVD's that I can redo but would love to get to it.  Thanks for any advice!

Hi seanmcd72,

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

You can go with a OS6 4-bay NAS models, which is the RN424 (https://www.netgear.com/business/products/storage/readynas/RN424.aspx#tab-techspecs) or RN524X (https://www.netgear.com/business/products/storage/readynas/RN524X.aspx#tab-techspecs).

 

You can check this link on how you can access the data from the volume on your legacy ReadyNAS using the new OS 6 chassis and offload it. Once data is offloaded, you need to reset the NAS to factory default so the disks will be reformatted and load the OS6 firmware.

Re: Readynas Ultra 4

Well I"ve been told of one option yes.  Just curious what other options if any might be available to get the files off of the 4 disks assuming they are intact.

No.  It would need to be an ultra, a pro, or an OS-6 x86 NAS (RN300 series or better).

An x86 linux system can access the disks.  The procedure for mounting the C volume is outlined here: https://community.netgear.com/t5/Using-your-ReadyNAS/Reading-NAS-disk-when-NAS-has-failed/m-p/962814...
