    Unable to mount Iomega Storcenter Array


    i know very little about Linux so I'm hoping someone can help me out. We have an Iomega Storcenter ix2 Nas. One of the drives failed today and I hooked the good one to a SATA bridge and loaded Ubuntu live. I can see a drive named Array but cannot access it to retrieve the data. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello & Welcome.
    You might be able to download a LiveCD or programs to help you along. I suggest you look at Parted Magic has a lot of nice tools like Photorec, DDrescue, MyRescue and Testdisk, In my opinion Parted Magic is the bees knees and everyone should have it on USB drive. Give it a whirl and let us know how it goes. Maybe you can use those tools to read/copy those files and hopefully make the best of a bad situation. Good Luck and don't feel shy about asking questions.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    Thanks for the reply. I have booted Parted Magic but the tools/lingo are all unfamiliar to me and I don't want to do anything that might lose the data. Here is the result of fdisk. Can anyone make sense of this. thanks.
