Netgear Data Recovery


I have been working with a Netgear Readynas Duo hard drive, which is storing a lot of data. After updating firmware files inside the driver a few months ago, I am receiving messages from the drive saying that the disks are overheating. The messages say that the disks are reporting temperatures of 55-56 degrees. The message then says that I need to shut down the hard drive immediately in order to service it. The first time that I got this message, I cleaned out the Netgear drive completely, wiping it free of dust, and even taking it apart and using an air spray to clean the parts. While it is hot here, I think that the Netgear fan should be cooling both disks down easily. I have not received any messages saying that the fan is broken, and although it is not as noisy as I would have expected for the reported temperature, It has since stopped working altogether and I cannot access any data on the drive.


I am having trouble with my system, which includes a Netgear ReadyNas NV system. I do a lot of work on the internet, and regularly download torrents at a fast speed. This has not been a problem in the past, but recently when I try to download a lot of items at once, including movie streaming, I get a message which says DNS error. The computer that I am using will work fine, so there are only a few messages and then the movie will play from start to finish, but other devices, such as a laptop and the gaming server, will not be able to get onto the internet at the same time. Now I cannot access the files stored on the Netgear ReadyNAS. Can someone help me to recover recover the files which are lost during the DNS error?
