Network Storage Recovery for WD My Cloud
Network Storage Recovery for WD My Cloud NAS is a software solution developed specifically for data recovery from network-attached storages of the My Cloud series produced by Western Digital. The software effectively handles various cases of data loss and restores files from bootable devices over LAN, regardless of the number of disks the model relies on.
The software has been developed specially for My Cloud NAS produced by Western Digital, taking into account all the peculiarities of the Ext4 file system applied in these devices, therefore, is able to provide users with the best result of data recovery possible in each data loss case.
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.
The utility features a set of special techniques for work with RAID of different levels created with mdadm as well as RAID configurations that employ striping and mirroring. The software also effectively handles non-RAID drive architectures (SPAN).
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.
Network Storage Recovery for WD My Cloud 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.
