Windows 7: Recover files from Linux based? NAS drive

24 Aug 2010   #1

Recover files from Linux based? NAS drive

Thanks for for your time,
I couldn't find any post close in nature to this problem.

I have a crashed Lacie network storage device, something in it's networking board is fried. It's comprised of 2 separate HDD's, both 500gig. I was afraid they were going to be stripped but it appears they hold their own complete files. I was able to look at the files through a file recovery program on Hiren's bootdisk. Said program was unable to keep file structure however. It seems theres no way to activate it to be read as a disk in windows.
Computer management reads both of the disks as having 5 small partitions and a large (476gig) partition on it. No real way to look into that partition though?
A couple other programs analyzed the disk and tell me it's 'linux native'.

Does anybody have any suggestions on how to pull the files as well as folder structure out of it?
