I have a D-Link DNS 323 NAS with a 500Gb and a 1TB drive. I am trying to copy from the 1TB drive to an external USB drive. The format on the NAS drives is FAT.
What happens is that when I start copying, the process starts and then errors out saying 'cannot find drive". When I go to the mapped drive letter in "My Computer", the contents are gone. If I reboot the NAS, I see the contents for a little while and then they are gone again.
I tried pulling the hard drive and connecting to a USB to SATA adapter and my computer wants to format it.
I am running XP SP3 and desperately need the contents of this drive. I was able to copy a few items but when I select anything large I get the error. I also have another NAS and every now and then I get the "disconnected Network Drive" message when I open my computer.
I am aware of the 4GB file size limit and have no issues copying large files from the 500GB drive on the same NAS!
Any suggestions will be appreciated!
