Author Topic: Need Help, I deleted my NAS's profile and now can't access the hard drive  (Read 1879 times)

A few months ago I deleted my NASs profile (for lack of a better word) which means now I can still use my NAS, but the main partition that I had ALL my files in no longer shows up. I know the files are all still there but the hard drive won't mount on a computer.

I bought a Harddrive adaptor so now I can plug it directly into the computer.
But the files, nor the hard drive do not show up. (I only have a MAC computer)
The computer realises that the hard drive is plugged in, (as its there in Disk Utility) but it won't mount any of the partitions.
I have got Linux on a USB and even on that it does not show up.

Is there any way I can grab the data and reformat the Harddrive to use again without paying for those expensive programs that take days to retrieve the info?
Is there a way I can fix the hard drive so it is viewable?

Thanks
Max

Thanks for the replys, I ended up wiping the hard drive and losing the data and starting again.
Thanks anyway.
