HOW TO CONNECT NAS DISKS PROPERLY

To recover NAS data you need to pull the disks out of the NAS box

You should do this even if you need just to undelete a couple of files. This is because NAS is a file-level data storage server connected to a computer network and it does not provide low-level access to the data stored on NAS disks which all data recovery solutions require.
