You checked the serial on the label... Can you trust it's the original label?
That's why I told you to check the PCB...
Jamaica PCB's are 2061-771672. The one from your drive is the same?

Qnap TS469 Recovery after Reset

Hi

But have you rebuild the RAID or not?
Are you looking at 1 drive at a time?

WDC Palmer Format CMD possible to get Data back...?

If the partition was only formatted and not re-writed it might be recoverable .
Try to use a good recovery software.

Windows not able to read from My Passport Ultra

Usually what I do is open the enclosure and convert the drive from USB PCB to SATA PCB for better control.
After that, I try to diagnose it.
Do you hear strange noises/clicks? or does it spin OK?
Could be a FW problem or a physical problem.
