RAID1 FORMATTED - Can I recover my files?
« on: February 28, 2017, 06:59:51 PM »

I mistakenly formatted a DNS-320 RAID1 to RAID1 again. I thought I was logged into my new 320 (I have two) and formatted it. Is there a way now to recover my files? I took one drive out and it is in a USB dock connected my my windows 10 pc. Is there recovery software recommended to find and copy these files onto a different hd?

Thanks

I've used this previously on regular drives.  Never tried something from a RAID 1/DNS320.

You can at least download it, it'll show you what it can recover if it can, before you buy.

In this case the user may not have a back up and he's trying to recover what the formatting has done.

RYAT3, there is one problem with that program.

Quote
from the manual.
1.5 Supported file-systems

Recover My Files has full Unicode support and can recover files created in any language.

Recover My Files supports the recovery of:

    Windows FAT12/16/32/exFAT, NTFS, file-systems;
    Macintosh HFS, HFS+ file-systems;


Nowhere does it mention Linux or Ext3/4 as being recoverable.

The only reliable way of recovering some of the data is to take one of the disks to a data recovery company.

There is the possibility of putting one of the disks in a USB/SATA adapter/caddy and using a Linux computer to examine the disk and use Linux disk recovery tools but requires a good working knowledge of file structures and segments.


I must confess that I am at a loss as to how anyone can mistakenly log on to the wrong NAS using the webUI.
