So if the issue is only related to the power supply, then replacing it, it might just work and you'll have learned a good lesson in the importance of backing up data.

So I assume then that when it "failed" it just completely went dead? Did you try testing to see if there is voltage on the power supply?

@Macnugget

The hot-spare could be a slight issue if it ever has been activated in the past.

But that's not a big deal, you'll easy locate it with R-Studio HEX viewer.

Thank you for the update

I'm glad they were not urgent data, for a company waiting so long for a powersupply to get again access to the data,

would have been a big damage
