The drives where RAID 1 and I understand the onboard OS was linux.
Unfortunately the device enclosure itself has completely died but both drives appear to be in perfect order (as indicated by local IT shop).
I have seen recommended elsewhere in these forums a D-Link DNS-320 device. In theory I could purchase this, drop in drives, format and away I go .... except for loss of data of course.
Just so you know - I have an offsite back-up of very nearly all the data so I'm not sweating thing too hard here.
Now for the questions.
1. Is the D-link 320 device a Unix software RAID too ?
2. What is the possibility of dropping in the two drives and still using the data in a RAID 1 configuration as if nothing had happened?
Sorry can't post a product link yet but forum topic below has details of D-link 320 device.
