Need to read a Linux drive on my Windows Computer
Posted on 2013-06-03
I have a Seagate Black Armor NAS 110 in which the service has gone out on the unit. Before I send it into Seagate for replacement, I want to back all of the data off of my drive. I called their tech/warranty support and they said I could use a Linux EX reader (I think this is what they called it) and plug it into my PC to pull off of the data.
I have never worked on a Linux drive so this is all new to me and I have a few questions.
* What software do I need to do this?
* I have an old XP PC that I assume I can open the case and plug the drive into, but could I somehow plug the drive into my HP laptop? I have an eSata port on the side?
Thanks for all of your help.
