I have a WD my book 1TB NAS, the chassis has failed but the drive is still good. My thoughts are quite simple, take out the drive and plug it into a computer to read. (Standard SATA USB reader)
However it is not turning out to be that simple, the drive is show as uninitialized in a Windows 7 machine and in Ubuntu. My problem is that if I initialize the drive will I lose the data? (I am pretty sure I will)
I have a few options availible to me which I am not sure will work or not.
Any help would be greatly apreciated.
