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.
1. Turn off the NAS
2. Get the disks out of the NAS
In the unlikely case if you have any difficulties with this, search YouTube for the video instructions for your specific model.
With all common NASes the process is pretty straightforward.
3. Take USB-to-SATA adapters
Take USB-to-SATA adapters along with power cables for them and prepare NAS disks for connection to a PC.
If possible, use USB 3.0 adapters to get more speed.
4. Connect the disks to a PC using the adapters
5. Plug in the power connectors
Although USB adapters provide power to the device being connected, hard disks require much more power to operate.
That's why you need to provide additional power for the disks.
6. Launch Home NAS Recovery
