I am trying to recover data from a NAS that fell off a the top of a PC tower. One drive "sounds" OK the other one probably has something physically wrong with it.
For the first drive I get the following when I try to mount it.
david@Office-ThinkPad-T520:~$ sudo mount /dev/sdb2 /mnt mount: /mnt: unknown filesystem type 'linux_raid_member'. david@Office-ThinkPad-T520:~$
How do I read the data from it? ANy help would be greatly appreciated since about 15years of photos have been backed up to the NAS. (I know I should have had a cloud backup to - but such is the benefit of hindsight :-(
The second drive makes clicking sounds. But I get this from
sudo fdisk - l though after 15 minutes it didn't complete.

Thanks Norbert sudo fdisk -l /dev/sdb gives me
