no problem.

easy way is to do a new fresh install on a new boot device, and load from webGUI your previosly saved config. (confi.xml) /cd/conf/config.xml

as easy as this.

do you have saved config.xml?.

if not:
1- download latest xigmaNAS and install on a new USB, for an embeded install : https://sourceforge.net/projects/xigman ... z/download is a good start point.

PD: To install on a new USB boot device I use RUFUS: https://rufus.ie/

2 - boot from this liveUSB

use option x to open a shell and copy /cf/conf/config.xml to a safe place ( you need to know what are your actual and older boot devices eg: one can be ada0 and other ada1, please use google to finf howto.

3 - once you have the file config.xml saved in a safe place, use option 9 to do a fresh install from the liveUSB to your definitive boot device ( other USB or a cheal SSD), and do a fresh install (you can do a embeded install (recomended) or other type of install acording your needs, please read forum to choose the better election.

when install is done, reboot, and detach liveUSB so you can boot from the new boot devide.

once booting sucessfully, restore fron webGUI your previosly saved config, your NAS reboot, and on the new restart you can see all your data disk and shares, and thats all.

Prerequisites: detach all data disk, and boot from new USBLive only in your NAS

at this point you need to atach old boot device, you must see on your screen the atach message and see the device number.

if not, you can type:

Code: Select all

camcontrol devlist
to see your attached disk and identify your old boot disk, you can see something like this ( in your case only 2 devices must be listed, old USB and new USBLive):
pnas: ~# camcontrol devlist
<ATA TOSHIBA DT01ACA3 ABB0> at scbus2 target 0 lun 0 (pass0,da0)
<ATA TOSHIBA DT01ACA3 ABB0> at scbus2 target 2 lun 0 (pass1,da1)
<ATA TOSHIBA DT01ACA3 ABB0> at scbus2 target 3 lun 0 (pass2,da2)
<ATA TOSHIBA DT01ACA3 ABB0> at scbus2 target 4 lun 0 (pass3,da3)
<ATA TOSHIBA DT01ACA3 ABB0> at scbus2 target 5 lun 0 (pass4,da4)
<ATA TOSHIBA DT01ACA3 ABB0> at scbus2 target 6 lun 0 (pass5,da5)
<TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 MX6OABB0> at scbus3 target 0 lun 0 (pass6,ada0)
<TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 MX6OABB0> at scbus3 target 1 lun 0 (pass7,ada1)
<TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 MX6OABB0> at scbus4 target 0 lun 0 (pass8,ada2)
<TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 MX6OABB0> at scbus4 target 1 lun 0 (pass9,ada3)
<OCZ-VERTEX2 1.37> at scbus5 target 0 lun 0 (pass10,ada4)
<TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 MX6OABB0> at scbus6 target 0 lun 0 (pass11,ada5)

now you need to mount old boot device :

Code: Select all

mount /dev/da1 /mnt 
<- change da1 for your old boot device


now you need to go to the config path and copy to your LiveUSB.

PD: on liveUSB go to /mnt and you see the mounted old boot disk.

Code: Select all

cd /mnt

Code: Select all

ls -la

Hello, you need to mount the old disk/partition/slice correctly, following this example and the uploaded image the syntax should be something like:

Code: Select all

mount /dev/da1s1 /mnt
Where s1 is the slice #1 on said USB disk, also to check this properly you can execute `gpart show da1` and you should see the slices on said disk.

After success mounting, you can start searching and recover the wanted files such the config.xml.

It looks like you're trying to mount the slice you are already on.
Try (without quotes): "mount /dev/da0s3 /mnt"
Can you identify which one da0 or da1 is your old usb stick?
