PERMISSION PROBLEMS ACCESSING FOLDERS ON DLINK - DNS 323 NAS SERVER

DLINK DNS-323 NAS SERVER.
SOMEONE RESET ALL THE USER PERMISSIONS AND OWNER ON THIS DEVICE AND NOW WE CAN'T ACCESS ANY FOLDERS. I LOGGED INTO THE MANAGEMENT CONSOLE OF THIS DEVICE AND HAVE THE  PERMISSIONS SET CORRECLTY PER FOLDER BUT THE  PROBLEMS IS THE OWNER IS TO "NOBODY"
ON THE ROOT OF THE SHARE.

I TRIED REPLACING THE OWNER USING WINDOWS/ ADVANCED SETTINGS UNDER THE SECURITY TAB BUT IT GIVES ME AN ACCESS DENIED ERROR. I CONTACTED DLINK AND THEY WERE NO HELP WHATSOEVER.

I NEED TO GET TO THESE FOLDERS SO I CAN COPY THEM OFF TO ANOTHER SERVER BUT I AM STUCK AND CANNOT PROCEED. I'VE ALWAYS BEEN ABLE TO REPLACE OWNER PERMISSIONS ON WINDOWS PC/ SERVERS BUT DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY THIS WON'T WORK ON THIS NAS SERVER.

IF ANYONE CAN HELP, I'D APPRECIATE IT.

How are you using the DLINK - DNS 323?  This is a BYOD model, so are you using 1 or 2 hard drives?  It also supports RAID.  Are you using Standard, JBOD, RAID 0, or RAID 1?

If only using 1 hard drive, or if using Standard or RAID 1, you could potentially use a desktop PC to help you do a backup.  You would remove a drive from the enclosure, and then install it into a desktop internally.  It would be a SATA drive, so you would only need an open SATA port on the motherboard.

Herein lies a problem, though.  I don't think that Windows sees Ext2 partitions (which the 323 uses by default.)  Meaning that you wouldn't be able to access the files if the desktop uses any flavor of Windows.  A workaround for this would be to use a live-version of Linux to boot on the desktop (since Linux sees Ext2 easily.)  A lot of Linux distros would work (Knoppix, DSL, Ubuntu, and Puppy, to name a few.)  You can google one of those and download its .iso file for free.  Then use a CD-burning tool to burn the .iso to a disc.  Then just put the disc in the computer and reboot.  It should boot to the CD and start up Linux.  If all goes well, you should be able to use a Linux desktop to access the hard drive and back up the files to whatever medium you choose.

But this is all in theory, of course.

I'm having a similar issue where i've abandonded some data due to monkeyikng around with the dns-323 security settings.  If anyone has some advice on integretating that security with windows better i'd love to hear it.  I think i will open a new question for it though.  I will try this solution and see if it works in my case as well.  I had thought about doing thi smyself but  since i'm not using RAID, i have however never burned a cd on any linux distro, and am not a linux user, so if anyone can give an easy solution for this it would be appreciated also.

can any distro of linux view ntfs partitions, sorry i'm not a linux guy, this may be a dumb question.  Also how do i change permissions once booted into linux, i don't care which distro, since i can probably download it, but i'm pretty familiar with the basics of damn small linux and a bit with openSuse.
