I have a Iomega Home Media Network Drive Cloud Edition 1TB that started clicking and then displayed a failure LED code Power LED and Red LED. I removed the SATA drive and inserted in a 'All in 1 HDD Docking Station' and connected to laptop by USB - Laptop has Win 7 OS. The dock is seen as drive E but cannot access and says 0% data etc. The drive does spin up when I power the dock. I have tried Linux/Ubuntu but that does not see the drive either. I really would like to recover the data, any suggestions please?

Recovering data from a failed drive is only possible by letting a data-recovery service deal with it - and that's mega-expensive. Whilst file-recovery software is plentiful, it won't do any good if Windows can't read it.

It's not wise to have valuable data saved on just one drive, for several reasons.
