Power status light blinks, indicating failure. HD clicks. Is that all?

I inherited a Maxtor Shared Storage II NAS. After sitting unused for some months, it now won't work; the drive makes a clicking noise periodically (I know that's not good), plus the power status light on the front blinks freen, continuously and rapidly, which from some googling indicates failure. I tried the reset, no joy. Not visible on network.

Question is: should I just junk it, or will replacing the drives possibly fix it? I don't even know where the OS is stored--in firmware, or on the drives?--and don't want to spend a lot of time on it myself. If there's a chance it's just the drive, I'll yank the drives out (it's my client's data) and sell the enclosure to someone who cares to fiddle with it.

I did find lots and lots of posts online about these failing, but a lot of them had to do with the Seagate drives inside, which may have fallen victim to the firmware bug last year.

I would first remove the internal drive mechanisms (isn't this a dual drive unit?) and test them

the clicking sound doesn't sound promising, that's likely a drive about to go. but I've also seen several external drive enclosures with dead interface logic, meanwhile the internal drive was fine. anyhow if this is a dual drive unit, then perhaps you can at least salvage one drive and reuse in another external enclosure.

Thanks, I'm not worried about the drives (new drives are cheap enough), just wonder if it's worth trying to salvage the enclosure.
