I have a Buffalo Terastation and I cannot access the files on it.
Here are the details:
I can access the web interface from the IP address.
I can put the ip address in explorer (no IE) and it will show me the shares. When I try to access a share it says one of two errors: "Nothing responded to request" or "Check my permissions"

I can access hte built in share of "INFO", so I know I should be able to access via this path.

I didnt use to have rights on share, but I turned them on, tried, then off again with no progress made.

I even put a shared in AD to see if I could access. No.

I have reset the settings on the Terastation. No.

I have hooked up a USB to the Terastation and tried a disk backup from the web interface. It says there is an error.

I turned on ftp and apple, but still cannot access via FTP or a MAC.

I did the disk checkup and everything shows as normal.

I even just the thing down for five days and came back to it.

I know the data is just sitting there but I cannot get to it.

I just want the data, I dont need to fix the dang thing.

buffalo terrastations use their own usership/passwords for authentication that can be outside the AD.

if you can see the shares but cant access them then its a problem with your securities on that drive.
you need to access it though the web interface and assign a new user/group to that share with full permissions.

once that is done,  map the drive (ie:\\terrastation\share) and use the option (use different username/credientials) to use the username and password you assigned in the terrastation.

also if you post the terra station model and what OS your using to connect to it would be helpfull.

I was not using any type of security on the directories. For troubleshooting, I turned it on with no change. Then I put it on AD, with no change. Actually, it did ask me for my user name and password, then game me the same error.

It is a TS-1.0TGL/R5 Firmware 1.04 (the latest according to TeraNav app.

by default the shares have NO access.  You need to go in to the web interface, create a user/password and then assign that to the share you want to access.

on page 39 of the manual it talks about settin gup the shares, towards the bottom you can see the access restrictions of the shares.

on page 42-43 it tells how to setup a user and groups.

basically you have to go in and add a user, apply the user to the share.
then on the pc map the drive and use the "connect as a different user" as described on page 46.

also on page 12, note your terrastation name.
when you type in the user name it will be    Terrastation_name\Username
ie: TERAPRO\BOB

I tried any and all solutions above and nothing worked.

Here is what I did. Installed Runtime's NAS recovery software. Saw that it worked and purchased for 99 well spent dollars. It recvovered pretty much everything.

I copied everything to an external hard drive. I reformatted the NAS and it seems to work fine. Copied data back to NAS.

Setup a backup of NAS.
