Do you know what type of RAID you had setup? If it was mirrored (RAID 1), you can probably just pull a drive out and plug it in to a machine with a SATA-USB adapter.

One thing to be aware of with cmgibson's suggestion is that ReadyNAS uses the Linux Ext3/Ext4 file system, not the Windows file system. So most Linux systems will be able to mount and access the disk, but if you want to access it under W7, you'll need some software for that. Here's one article that discusses it (I'm sure a Google search will turn up others):
