Trying to get data from a UFS drive to a windows or a mac
Posted on 2007-12-05
Hey there, we are a Microsoft shop primarily, with a token MAC technician. One of our customers had a NAS unit (popnetserver 4300) that we changed some mirrored drives out with larger units. Something did not go right with the larger units, so we are trying to suck the data off one of the old mirrored drives. Your Stellar BSD seems to have identified the drive correctly (we were not sure what the unit used since the popnetserver company went out of business). It seems to be UFS. Any suggestions on how to mount this type of drive to either a PC or MAC so we can copy the files off to a more recognized file format and then we can put back together. The drive has not failed, just in a format we have not seen before. We have tried quite a few utilities on a windows machine, but they either crash or cannot see the drive. Stellar BSD is the only one successful, but it is $499 for a 1.5MB Program which the client cannot afford. We'd like to be heroes on this, and I imagine we are coming at it from a wrong angle. Big points, no whammy's!
