NAS data recovery
As I have posted about in the past it’s always a good idea to have a backup, and a backup of the backup. Presently I have 3 copies of my important data and it was a good thing here this past week as I was writing this post my computer decided to die on me and not start up again. Thankfully I had all the data I needed backed up, all I had to do was get a new computer and I was good to go.
Now what happens in the off chance that your Network attached storage device goes down? The drives are still good but you can’t just plug them into a normal computer and expect them to work. You would have to get a new NAS same make and model and hope that it is able to boot up without having to rebuild the array.
Enter Home NAS data recovery software they make software for NAS data recovery from your windows PC. Their software is simple to use and windows based. All you have to do is add your drives to your computer, select the drives and let the software analyse the array. It is expected to find the array, and rebuild the file table so that you can recover data that you would have otherwise lost.
Their purchase model is based only on if they can help you out or not. So they let you see what you can recover before they ask you to pay. Their payment method is based on the number of drives in the array a single disk array is $69 up to an 8 disk array at $299
They claim a 97% success rate for recovering data. Unfortunately my array was in the 3% that could not be recovered. However the technical support I received was pretty good and we are currently working to understand why my data was not recoverable and get it fixed.
Overall I would try this NAS data recovery software again, there is no harm in trying, and it doesn’t cost anything to try.
