Here is the context:
- I wanted to save the data of a 2 TB HDD plugged into a Dlink DNS-320L NAS.
This NAS was connected to my old PC (With a Win XP OS)
I have not used this HDD since about 6 months but I noticed I could not access it.
So now that I have a new PC (with a Win 10 OS) I wantto save the data but I have problems ...
Here is what I made:
1/ on Win 10:
- I successed in connecting the Dlink DNS-320L NAS and the led of HDD was green so the HDD is considered as ok
but I only see a part of a little partition of the HDD (about 150gb of 2 To)
I tried to use a lot of utilties ext2f ... but without sucess
I also tried to directly connect the HDD in Sata but without success
2/ I decided to reconnect the HDD with my old PC directly in Sata (WinXP) and used
with this utility I could have access to a 550 Gb partition of the HDD but not to the main partition (around 1,20 To)
for information the HDD makes a normal noise and the different utilities and the disk mamangement of windows don't etect a problem with it.
I just noticed that the 2TB HDD was detected as a RAW filesystem.
Is it normal that his filesystem is RAW ? it should be ext 3 normally ?
Perhaps I should try other utilities but which one ? (on Win XP or Win 10 it doesn't matter)
Thanks for your help.
