Hello all, simple situation with a perhaps complicated solution, do you have some hints ?
Question: How to recover files form a deleted share on a RAID1 Volume ?
I recently purchased a WD MyCloud EX4100 NAS.
Since I already had a few 3.5 WD HDDs I decided to use the following storage configuration:
2 x 4TB as RAID1 volume and 2 x 3TB as RAID1 volume, all formatted with EX4.
The two Volumes were created successfully and I created several shares into which I moved my data.
After a while I saw that additional shares had been created on the volumes, only with numbers added at the end of the share name. This looked strange to me and so I deleted the shares - included the shares I had created -. I was not aware, that by this action, the files in this share would also be deleted (After consulting the manual, now I know that this was not such a good idea).
Since after deletion of the share, all data seemed to be lost, I tried several approaches to recover that data.
Putting all two HDDs from one RAID1 into a Windows computer and
- trying to recover the RAID partitions to get folders or files - trying to undelete the files with different tools
lead to no satisfied solution.
Even trying the same actions on a Linux machine didn’t changed the situation.
Do you have additional hints to get back the data ?
Any new approach would be highly appreciated.
Best regards, Michael
