I'm in a real bind here. About a week ago I bought a QNAP TS-239 Pro II+ and transferred all my important data across to it. It's a 2 TB RAID 1 array, because I really don't want to lose this stuff.
All's been going pretty well until this afternoon when I booted up the NAS and the fans just screamed for about five minutes, with nothing else happening before I decided that the thing had to be shut down before some damage was done. (It's the middle of winter here by the way, freezing and no need for fans to be going like that.)
Now when I boot up the NAS I can access it via its IP address (192.168.10.10) using a web browser and I can browse around in that window for about 90 seconds, but then I get another beep from the NAS and the browser window just stalls, any further attempts to access the NAS will not work.
I've used Firefox, Safari and Chrome across Linux and OS X computers, all with the same result.
How can I get this very very valuable data back?
Will the reset button on the back wipe the data?
Is it any use pressing it?
Can I take out the disks and install them in a Linux box?
