NSA-542 formatted NSA-325 3TB disk

#1 Post by gazsiazasz »

There is a disk formatted on NSA-542 after the old NAS (NSA-325) crashed. (It is a single disk, never was in a raid set)


Tried to recover original filesystem, but testdisk only found MS Data filesystems. Now photorec is running on the disk.

Is there any way to get back the original partition layout?

The new partitions are at the exact same place than than the previous ones, so no TestDisk can not find the old ones.
