Recovering data from a NAS hard drive

I have a Seagate NAS110 hard drive that is no longer readable in the enclosure .

I have been able to take the hard drive out of the enclosure and have connected it to my win 7 pc.

I can see the partitions listed in disk management in win7.  How can I then read those partitions and recover the data?

I ended up being able to get access to my data and recover it by using the ontrack recovery software.

There was a cost to the software but it worked really well.

The hard drive is faulty hence why this happened in the first place.

Thanks all for the input and I would recommend people try the ontrack recovery software.
What file system is the nas formatted in?

It should show up automatically on your computer.... If not, there are a few options

1. Drive letter not assingned properly
Right click on 'my computer', click manage
Or just run compmgmt.msc from a command prompt or run window
Assign drive letter to the HDD if shown

2. The MBR may be corrupt,
While in computer management, try to fix the record DO NOT INITIALIZE!

3. If both options are not applicable, chances are the HDD is dead

If however, you are able to see the folders but can't access them. You may need to log in as an administrator and take ownership of the drive.

NAS is using Linux file system. So you need to boot your system from Parted Magic CD or GParted and use its File copy tools to copy out the data from this drive.
