Without any answer to the suggestions already done in https://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions/swapping-nas-hdd-to-a-new-nas/: (1) just try and (2) just try from Linux, (3) professional data recovery service.
Locking this thread.
Hi, I have an LG NAS drive N2R1DB2 that has failed. It boots up and I can see it on the network but I can’t access the data nor log on to the admin site. Also the menu on the device itself has frozen.
I'm assuming its a complete failure therefore I am hoping to save my data by buying a new NAS (D-Link ShareCenter DNS-320L) and slotting the 2 HDD from the LG to the D-Link NAS. However I’m concerned the D-Link will want to format the HDD and I will lose all my data, will this happen?
If so can I put the HDD in to a HDD enclosure and access the data via USB? I’m assuming the data won’t be viewable via Windows as the data is saved using linux or similar but hopefully I can access it/transfer it via the D-Link USB port.
