Network Storage Recovery for WD MyCloud NAS is a specialized software solution intended for data recovery from MyCloud NAS devices of Western Digital. The utility makes it easy to rescue files lost from units of the MyCloud series and by connecting to the storage via LAN, it eliminates the need to disassemble the NAS box and attach the drives directly to the computer.
When the NAS unit is booted, the software obtains access to the storage via a networking protocol and enables the recovery of data from its disks via LAN without any manipulations with the hardware internals. There is no need to worry about the warranty, vacant ports or any additional equipment – the procedure can be performed even when the disassembly is not possible or may lead to undesirable consequences.
Developed specially for NAS devices of the MyCloud series produced by Western Digital, the program takes into account the peculiarities of storage technologies employed by these models. Therefore, it allows avoiding the compatibility issues that may occur when non-specialized software is used and achieving the maximum effectiveness of data recovery.
For MyCloud NAS units that are based on the RAID technology, the application can automatically detect the parameters of the array and puts the storage together, including standard mdadm RAID levels (RAID 0, RAID 1) and non-RAID drive architectures (SPAN).
Though the software automatically reads out the configuration of the array from the available metadata, there are still cases when this information gets lost or severely corrupted. Under such circumstances, the user can define RAID manually by specifying its level, stripe size, etc. and build it in a virtual mode for further data recovery operations.
The straightforward and convenient interface substantially simplifies the work and eliminates the required efforts to just a couple of clicks. The recovered folders and files can be sorted by date, size, type and names while the search function allows looking for particular items. It is also possible to preview images, texts, PDF-documents or videos, save all the found data at once or select the needed folders or files.
