Iomega IX2-200 RAID 1 problem

Recently I accidentally turned my Iomega IX2-200 NAS raid 1 array into a JBOD. When I realized my mistake, didnt wirte anything on disks, disconnected the equipment and I've been tried to get the data back with diverse software, like easeus, a-z recovery, nas data recovery & get data back.

I've been able to get some data back, but renamed and without folder structure. but that wasn't good enough given the amount of information I got. With A-Z recovery, I can get some folder structure back, but with a 90% files corrupted, so isnt functional. My question is, the only thing I haven't tried is to rebuild the RAID 1 from disk 2, but I dunno if this will work, cause maybe the system motherboard already also erased partition in disk 2. Is thera a way to know this? anybody has faced same problem with this hardware? Pls advice.

  1. Remote NAS recovery is my specialty. I've worked on similar devices and can say your Iomega is likely using Linux Software RAID under the hood. First thing I would try a tool like Testdisk to see if it can find your original partitions. You would be looking for an XFS filesystem.

    Also any further write activities to the drives like a RAID rebuild is a bad idea unless you've first made image backups.
