I am trying to get access to data that is currently stored on my SATA Hard Drive.
I was using a D-Link NAS (model DNS-323) on my home network to save files and access files wirelessly. I've tried everything I can think of, but I can no longer find this D-Link device on my network, so I'm looking to get access to the data directly from the SATA Hard Drives the data is stored on. (The Hard Drives model is Western Digital 750GB SATA 32MB Cache - WD7501AALS)
I purchased a Sabrent SATA USB 3.0 Docking Station so I could connect the SATA HDD's directly to my computer via USB 3.0 to gain access to this data. After putting the SATA Hard Drive in this docking station and connecting it to my MacBook Pro, I got an error message saying it could not read the drive. I tried the same with a Windows 8 laptop and got a similar error message.
I did some googling and learned the SATA Hard Drives from the D-Link DNS-323 are in a Linux EXT file format that windows (or Mac) can not read. I did some more googling for possible solutions and came across a program to try called "Disk Internal Linux-Reader" that some people seemed to have some success doing what I need. When using this program, I can see the drive and the total storage on it (465GB's), but I can't open it. When I click to open the drive, I get an error message saying "Can't open disk. Check the disk and try again".
So I need to somehow get the data that is stored on this SATA Hard Drive in Linux EXT file format on either my Mac (MacBook Pro), or Windows computer.
Any suggestions would be very helpful and appreciated!
