Vendor-specific software solution

Network Storage Recovery for Synology NAS is a powerful software application developed for data recovery from NAS manufactured by Synology. The utility features a set of techniques for work with the Ext4 file system applied in these devices providing the best possible recovery results in every case.

Data recovery from NAS without the need for disk removal

The utility allows restoring lost files from a bootable NAS device without the necessity to disassemble the storage and connect its disks to a PC, enabling efficient data recovery in cases when the removal of NAS disks is impossible or undesired.

Data recovery from RAID-based NAS

Developed for restoring data from various models of Synology NAS, the utility allows working with RAID of different standard levels applied in these systems and created with mdadm, including RAID0, RAID1, RAID5, RAID6, as well as with hybrid RAIDs.

Option of manual RAID assembly

The software automatically detects available RAID configurations, however, in cases when RAID metadata has been lost or corrupted, the user can define an array manually by specifying its level, stripe size, etc. and build it in a virtual mode.

Two types of scanning

Network Storage Recovery for Synology NAS offers two types of search for lost files and folders: a quick scanning of a special dedicated area which can be applied after minor file system damage and a long scanning for severely damaged file systems. The search results can be also improved by enabling the raw recovery option, which allows finding files by known content.

NOTE: data recovery over LAN is impossible for the following Synology models:
DS110+, DS210+, DS410

WE RECOMMEND using Recovery Explorer or UFS Explorer for data recovery from these devices.
