Hello All, New user here that need some help recovering files off a Seagate NAS system. Hopefully I can find some help here on how to mount it via Ubuntu and grab the files. I bought a seagate NAS system for the office roughly 1 year ago and now the raid controller died and reset itself to Raid 0. The files are still there intact on the harddrive, but it seems very difficult to retrieve files. The Steps I've done so far. Booted via Ubuntu gparted shows that all partitions are there, but inaccessible due to FS shows GPT. Didn't know what to do with the Seagate drive so I used Active@ Partition v14 to recover the files. I was able to retrieve some files like xlsx files that are less than 1 mb with some success, but any of the pertinent data that are larger than 2 mb I didn't have any success. After this issue, I am done with Seagate harddrive. They were once good and decent, but are now terribly manufactured and some will not even last 1 year. Any help is appreciated.
