Data recovery from HDD

#1

Post by Benjamin7 » 26 Oct 2016 16:50

Hi guys,

I'm not the best with computers but i built myself a pretty new DELL from Windows to NAS4Free,
anyway, i played aa little bit with it.
I stored all my data on it, added a disk and then did something wrong, i cant acces data on both HDD anymore.

Is there a easy way to put the HDD in a USBcase and read them out on a Windows computer?
I'm desperated as i need some data from it.

Greetz, Benjamin

best way to get your data back is: to have it backed up and just restore it from the backup. :roll:
added a disk and then did something wrong
a) what exactly did you do and
b) which file system do you use UFS or ZFS?
NAS 1: Milchkuh: Asrock C2550D4I, Intel Avoton C2550 Quad-Core, 16GB DDR3 ECC, 5x3TB WD Red RaidZ1 +60 GB SSD for ZIL/L2ARC, APC-Back UPS 350 CS, NAS4Free 11.0.0.4.3460 embedded
NAS 2: Backup: HP N54L, 8 GB ECC RAM, 4x4 TB WD Red, RaidZ1, NAS4Free 11.0.0.4.3460 embedded
NAS 3: Office: HP N54L, 8 GB ECC RAM, 2x3 TB WD Red, ZFS Mirror, APC-Back UPS 350 CS NAS4Free 11.0.0.4.3460 embedded

So i had on my freenas built, running from a USB,
I had 2 HDD, one in the Nas, and then one with my data, i have sent all from my one disk onto the Nas, then wiped the old data disk and built it into the NAS to i would have 2 1TBdrives in the nas...

So my data is on the
I have been trying to playing with Windows CIFS shares, with Couchpotato, owncloud and plexmediaserver plugins,

I think i did something wrong when i put in the new HDD and made a new CIFS or tried to add the second disk to the existent hdd...
My data is on the CIFS share.
I also have been looking to a toturial about how to make sure to have your data save that they cant break into your nas but dont remember what i did.

I can still see the 'Benjamin' CIFS share so i'm queit sure the data is still on the disk, but as you can read i have no clue what i did :-(

As i only installed the NAS a few months ago, i think it could only be ZFS, where can i check on this?

Which file system do you use?
Why you just won't look at information on the internet? For example http://appleinsider.com/articles/16/12/ ... ard-drives - this the first that I found. But I think before you get your hopes up you should know that a large percentage of deleted files cannot be restored. Still, if you're in the type of dire straits, it's definitely worth trying.

Sorry, you can only recover data from HDD through the data recovery tool. AnyRecover and EaseUS are worth considering.
