Access Files From A .VDI
Posted: 07 Nov 2014 18:16
Good Afternoon. I created network storage about 4 years ago. The basics of my setup are the following: O/S was Ubuntu 10.10, NAS4Free version 0.7.2 as a virtual machine, VirtualBox 4.0.0. I had two hard drives--one had my Ubuntu setup and the second 1TB HDD was my NAS. I used this primarily to share music and videos through Subsonic. A few months ago the pc crashed--I had a backup on an external drive so have been using that for the time being--my thinking was that I still had the drives from the old Ubuntu as a backup. As my luck would have it, my external drive also crashed, so now I am trying to retrieve my files from the secondary HDD, which has only a .vdi file. I don't use Ubuntu anymore so I used DiskInternals to pull the .vdi file from the hard drive to my local machine. I installed NAS4Free 0.7.2 into VirtualBox (4.0.0). I made basic configuration to interface etc, shutdown NAS4Free and attached the .vdi file as a secondary drive in VirtualBox. Restart NAS4Free and shared the drive. I can see the share on the network and can see the directory files for what I would assume would be NAS4Free, but cannot find where files are stored... Can someone direct me on what I am doing wrong or which directory the files should be stored? Or if I there is a more efficient way to retrieve the files, I would greatly appreciate any suggestions. Thank you.
