First let me provide a bit of a back story. A few years ago I bought a D-Link DNS-323 NAS so that my wife and I could keep our photos and important digital media safe (ran it as RAID 1). The last few years it has been giving us problems. I always wanted to fool around with Ubuntu/Linux and finally found the time. I set up a basic server with some help, and it finally came time to transfer the files. Turns out the one disk is dead, can't get any info off of it.

The second one is working, but it will not let me access it. I tried to use the hard drive in the DNS-323 networked, but it won't let me access it (permission denied). Used the DNS-323 ftp server, and with that I was able to access it and see the files but I couldn't download anything. Unplugged the hard drive and plugged it into my Windows machine (used a program that will read ext2/ext3 formatted disks) and it would not let me in. Finally I plugged it into my Ubuntu machine and did a fdisk -l, and it told me the partition was invalid.

Please! does anyone know how I can get the files off of the hard drive (or point me in the right direction), my wife and I have (the first) six years of pictures of the kids on it. I thought I was doing the safe thing in running it in RAID 1, but alas it's not fool proof.

Thanks for any help
