NAS Drive DATA Recovery from failed NAS Drive

  Ste Worrall 19:31 06 Sep 2016

As per my last post of slow transfer speeds from my PC to NAS Drive, I have found the NAS Drive has gone faulty, the Ethernet cable connection port has failed. I have stripped the unit down and removed the HDD, and I have a external caddy to connect the drive to, to try and recover as much data as I can. However Im led to beleive that NAS Drives are not simply data storage, they store the files in a different way, which is why I seem to have issues connecting to the HDD. When I connect the recovered HDD to the computer It wont allow me to access the disk unless I format it, Can anyone advise me how I could recover the data from this HDD

Your NAS is probably a linux based system so if you download and burn a linux distro and boot from that you should then be able to mount the drive and recover the data.

Stick the Drive back in its Case and use the USB Port
