NAS devices are complex than any other storage devices to retrieve data from. But with Remo Recover, an advanced recovery tool works seamlessly in such complex situation to restore the entire content of the NAS drives.

Some NAS units have the storage capacity of 1 TB or more. Having such a humongous storage is great, but imagine losing 1 TB of data at once due to system failure, virus attack or sudden power shutdown. Scary, right? In this article, you’ll learn how to recover files from NAS hard drive with the help of Remo Recover.

NAS unit looks exactly or similar to USB drive enclosures but function differently. NAS units are more complex than the USB disk enclosure. NAS devices have RAID arrays to accomplish such huge storage capacity, recovering data from these devices is much more difficult.

Pre-Requisite for NAS Data Recovery

Before you start hard drive partition recovery from NAS, there are few things that you need to do. You should know the setup of the arrays where the data has been stored.

  • A Windows PC to connect the NAS drives. SATA is the most preferable, but not all computers have 4 to 6 SATA ports. So, if feasible, select a powerful PC since recovering large data needs a bigger resource.
  • Storage space to restore all the rescued contents from the NAS disks. It is not possible to copy the NAS array onto the same disk. Nevertheless, it is not necessary that the entire data be stored on a single drive – you can copy files to different drives or you can even store it on a network.
  • A lot of time as scanning all the NAS disks isn’t an easy task. So don’t expect the recovery process to finish fast. If NAS data recovery is done correctly, it may take few days to complete the process. On the brighter side, you don’t have to be present in front of the PC all the time, as the computer will work on its own majority of the time.
