I have Buffalo Linkstation Drive for last 14 months. So it automatically started crashing a around a week ago. In this the unit would matter error beeps and would have to be left for a number of time previous to the process which could get start again. Regarding this I have checked on many of the website so in last I have find out that this issue is very common. I believe the beeps the unit was pushing out referred to a likely fan failure, but I could be wrong. Buffalo do offer to put back the whole unit in the event of such a failure - but you misplace all your data. This drive was a family network backup drive, and holds everything from the last 5-6 years, photos, videos, music etc. So in lastly I have decided to remove this. But after doing this I am not able to see its contents through Windows Explorer. So please help me.
