My brother got an issue with a Seagate Central network disk. The network part doesn't work anymore, and he wants to rescue the data and copy to a usb-disk/computer drive etc...
The challenge is that Seagate utilizes a file format related to Ubuntu/Linux. He tried to pull out the hard disk from the storage unit and hook up to a Windows computer via USB. That didn't work that well, because the 3TB drive apparently is formatted in like 500GB partitions with a Ubuntu/Linux format. That is not recognized by Windows.
So the task is how to move/copy data to a "normal" disk that will work with Windows.
I found a Gparted software that is supposed to do the trick, but we're a bit insecure about what to do and if this is the right procedure.
Did any of you out there try a similar task? We would prefer if it's possible to do the whole thing with a Windows based software.
Looking forward to your suggestions. :-)
