Network Drive File format help......

  Ste Worrall 12:19 18 Mar 2017

I have a Network HDD that I used to stream Audio/Video files to my AV equipment, the actual housing the HDD is in, has broken, the ethernet connection socket failed, so now I am left with the HDD unit itself, However plugging it into my HDD Caddy, that is connected to my Desktop via USB3, the Desktop doesnt regonise the file system. I have tried using data recovery software but that doesnt recognise the drive either. What, if anything can I do to be able to recover data from this HDD unit. Is there any program out there that can convert the file system into a readbale format? The data on the drive is not valuable to me but I would like to try and recover it, Many thanks

You say "to my AV equipment" - what equipment?

was this a NAS unit?

its probably on a linux style formatted drive.

Easus Partition manager (download the free version) will recognise it and you will be able to explore the drive from within EPM and you can save your files to another drive.

click on the EXT2 partitions one at a time

then see if you can right click each one and select explore.

I can explore one or two of the partitions but all that shows up on screen is this, it wont allow me to do anything else, Thanks for keeping with me on this

Can you click on lost and Found - right click and save it then open an explorer window and paste into a new location?
