System Hard Drive Failure: Data recovery possible? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I used HDD drives from WD Green Drives (WD15EAS),4 of them, unknown to me at the time these drives have an issue when used in shared storage/raid (something about the heads setting more frequently than usual so the drives "wear out" in months rather than years).  Anyhow, my system drive was the first to fail.  Is it possible to get the data from the other drives?  I am looking at losing over 40,000 songs, 1500 family pictures, 30 or so videos, business documents, etc.
