Data Recovery from XFS to NTFS?
Posted on 2008-10-29
So, I have a problem that may not be unique. I have a Buffalo HS-DH320GL that was running firmware version 1.03. I elected to update that to version 2.1 today to enjoy the web access feature. Something didn't take correctly, and now I have a NAS that won't join the network - not even with Buffalo support on he phone and DIRECTLY connecting to to my PC NIC. Their solution is RMA it, but then I lose my data.
So, the LiinkStation OS is Linux, and the 320 GB drive is XFS. I purchased an external USB enclosure and pulled the drive from the LS. Fired up UBUNTU 8.04.1 from CD and it saw the drive perfectly. Only problem is, I cannot copy any of the files to my Windows PC. I also tried SystemRescueCD, but I am far from a Linux/Shell type guy, so this is Greek to me. Is there a GUI that will allow a copy of this data to my other hard drive? I cannot allow this data to be sent back to Buffalo for fear it will be lost, so I need to find a way to copy it or simply delete it before I RMA the drive.
Has anyone experienced this before? Copying FROM XFS to NTFS? Any help is appreciated.
