Hi,

I am looking for some assistance in recovering a file from a Overland Snap NAS Device. A file was placed on the server earlier today and since by accident deleted again from it.

I have been told the file is not saved on any machines and never was so recovery from a PC is not an option

It is an excel file,

Any ideas how i might recover it from the NAS,

It is an embedded or linux based device so installing some kind of recovery software on the box is not an option,

It is a small 4 bay NAS (Snap 410 i think)

Thanks,

first at all, don't  copy or move any data to the nas, look for the program called getdata back, there are two versions one for ntfs another one for fat32,  Check out www.runtime.org for the data recovery software called RAIDReconstructor and GetDataBack

I had a look at the software, It seems it will only recover from Widows for the standar one,

The NAS Recovery tool mentions it only recovers from single drive NAS Devices,

I have a 4 Bay NAS that has a Raid 5 array accross the disks,

The NAS is perfect and all disks are fine but this partiular file was deleted,

I am not familiar at all how files are deleted on a NAS, I would be much more familiar with Windows,

I am not sure this software will do it, Any other ideas???
