DNS-343 - Data Recovery
« on: October 02, 2011, 11:50:34 AM »

If you are unable to access the data stored on your ShareCenter due to a catastrophic hardware or software failure and exhausted all conventional options, a number of ShareCenter owners (DNS-320, DNS-321, DNS-323, DNS-325, DNS-343) reported varying levels of success recovering their data using the following third party applications: Ext2IFS, R-Studio, and NAS Data Recovery.

Since the ShareCenter series formats hard drives using the Linux filesystem, DNS-formatted drives are not directly readable by Windows PCs without the support of a third party application.

These applications require physically installing the ShareCenter hard drives in a Windows PC and will enable direct access to ShareCenter data via Windows. Based on ShareCenter user experience reported in this forum, Ext2IFS works with Standard Volumes, RAID 0, and RAID 1, while R-Studio seems to work well with managing more complex disk configurations, such as JBOD and RAID 5. NAS Data Recovery works with RAID 5 arrays. Ext2IFS is free of charge, while R-Studio and NAS Data Recovery are available for purchase.
