My Mybook won't power on anymore. The disk drive however seems to be working. Does anybody know what Linux filesystem is used by Western Digital. I am very interested in suggestions on how to recover information from the disk.
if im not mistaken, its ext3. same thing happened to mine. what i did was physically take the hd out of the enclosure and attatched it to my desktop. then i installed the ext3 windows driver so windows can access the drive. recovered all my data with acronis disk director suite. reformatted it to ntfs. installed it in another mybook enclosure… waaaaa laaaa!
it is ext3, details about each partitions info can be found here
Did this stop working after setting up ssh and modifying the inittab file?
If so, it's a simple fix, but you will need to open up the mybook to do it and temp install it in a desktop.
