Synology DiskStation 415+ NAS failed. Blue power button LED keeps blinking. Status LED is off. All 4 disk orange LEDs steady on (there are only 2 HDDs installed). Removing all hard drives doesn't change anything. Replacing RAM doesn't change anything either. All this indicated motherboard failure. Owner asked to recover data from hard drives.
- Connect both hard drives to a PC.
- Boot PC from a Linux Mint (18.3) Live CD.
- Open Terminal and run:
- sudo apt-get install mdadm
- sudo sudo apt-get install lvm2 (in my case it was already installed)
- sudo mdadm -Asf && vgchange -ay
- Wait few seconds and the RAID is mounted as a new volume.
- Browser the volume and copy required folders to an external USB drive.
