I have Western digital DX 4000 NAS but would like to place a large volume of data (700GB) from an old hard drive on the NAS.
How do I do this ?

Can I place the hard drive in the NAS and copy or do I have to copy over network????

Please advise.

My 2.0 TB Western Digital Caviar Green (WD20EARS) has started showing up as Unitialized 0.0 MB in DiskMgmt.msc

Had partitioned it as a single physical partion with MBR.

There are around 25GB of photos/files which are important for me and we seek your kind help in recovering those.

My exposure to Hard Disk and Recovery Techniques is very minimal, so my apologies for newbie questions.

Which order do I follow to improve chances of recovery?
Also a few queries:
1. Can / should the Disk be initialized before running a recovery software?
2. Should the MBR be recreated?
3. Give same formatting and file type as before?
4. Can cloning work without unitializing

Any recommendations on softwares to be used would be appreciated.


I had this question after viewing What exactly does the 'Initialize Disk' option in Disk Management do?.

I am tryiong to backup a Western Digital NAS to 2 external USB hard drives. The NAS is running Windows 2008 Storage essentials.

The drives need to be rotated with a drive being taken offsite on alternate nights.

It also needs to send an email notification on job completion or failure.

I have tried using the built in backup utiity in Windows but it doesnt have email notification. I have tried using task sacheduler to send email when certain criteria are met but it just wont work for me.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a simple, free backup solution that will do these 2 things?

Thanks

The prices for internal drives are higher than I want to pay. This is probably a stupid question, but I'm seeing 4TB external drives for less than the internal ones (including one that seems to be running at 7200 RPMs.). Why would I not cannibalize an external drive for the drive I want, particularly as the Imac doesn't have a USB 3.0 capability?
