sftp? Why should that work?

Anyway, you can create a recovery stick, and use it. This has as disadvantage that it will delete your data, as it does a full factory reset, including generating a new data partition.

You can also use this pre-prepared recovery stick. It wll turn your ix2-200 into an ix2-200 CE. You'll have to do the procedure twice. The first time you'll have to rename the directory emctools/ix2-200d_images/ to emctools/ix2-200_images/. Then the CE kernel is flashed to rom. Rename it back, and the userland is installed to harddisk.
This will delete your data!

Oh dear. Then you have more problems than 'just' a crashed disk. Can you post the output of

Code: Select all

cat /proc/partitions
cat /proc/mounts
cat /proc/mdstat

I see. Did that also solve your firmware update problem?
/dev/mapper/md1_vg-md1vol1 /mnt/soho_storage xfs rw,noatime,logbufs=8 0 0
At least this is changed, as you had only a /mnt/apps.
