Accidentally deleted files, how to recover?

Have a WD My Cloud EX2 Ultra 4Tb NAS.

Accidentally deleted a lot of files from various different shares and they weren’t in the recycling bin (I believe it was deleted when I was fooling around with my Nextcloud Pi)

I powered down the NAS asap and haven’t touched it since.

Picked up a 2 bay external HDD dock and an additional 4Tb red drive.

Will using testdisk via Ubuntu and copying the deleted files to the new drive work? I would rather not ef this up further… any suggestions or help would be appreciated :smiley:



Hi Matt87,

This is not the recommended way for data recovery and I don’t think it will work. I would suggest you to go for the Data Recovery.
