I've got a 1 TB MBWE. The other day the light was on solid, but I couldn't access it, or power it down. I unplugged it from the wall. Now, when I power it up, I don't get a blue light, or any network connection. Thinking the drive might have died, I removed it and plugged it into my laptop with a SATA-USB cable. I loaded ubuntu on a pen drive and booted up my pc. I can mount the boot, var and data partitions and all the data seems to be fine. I've never done any hacking into the drive before this, so it's a default installation.
Is there any log on the first partition that gets written to during the boot process? I looked in var/log/messages, but it doesn't have anything for about two weeks, which is right after the last time I used it.
Any other ideas?
