How to access Qnap formated drive

Post by TCB_38 » Sat Sep 07, 2019 7:45 pm

I have a drive formatted with Qnap -TS-251+ ,however don't have that Nas anymore and I would like to copy some files I have there.
Will an External Hard Drive Docking Station (Windows,Mac and Linux capable) able to help me transfer/copy my files?

the easy way .. with an external backup, you should have made before getting rid of the qnap

also easy(but expensive) .. with a data rescue company

medium hard would be if you had static volume(s) .. should attach to a linux computer without much fuss

hard is if you used storage pools..check the forum for guides on how to mount qnap lvm volumes ... you need some linux skills to pull that off
