My Book World Edition II (Blue Ring) - How to recover your Data by connecting the HDD to a PC

After my NAS ( old WD My Book World II.) stopped working about 2 months ago, I tired many different scenarios to retrieve my data from the internal HDD. Unfortunatley because the HDD was Linux Ext3 format, I failed many times until I learned about Ext2Fsd tool ( I downloaded/Installed this tool on a Windows PC and after connecting my Ext3 HDD by using an external SATA-USB enclosure, I was able to read the data via Windows Explorer and copy the data from the Ext3 HDD to My Passport.

I am sharing this info in case there are others who may have the same need.
