Hello,

I had an RAID 1 in a Buffalo NAS and I accidently reinitialized it. So it looks like the filesystem is totally or maybe just partially overwritten. Is there a way to recover the files?

I would have a backup but it's from last sunday and I would rather buy a software for 100 or 200 USD then redo a whole week of work. I tryed UFS-Explorer and it seems to find some stuff and it's even able to get some names but not all files I would need was found.... Some other suggestions?


Thanks for you help!

Unfortunately with an EXT file system (or XFS) you will have some file system corruption. Most NAS boxes will do a lot more than just reinitialize the drives. They will set up a new RAID and lots of file system metadata will be overwritten. UFS is very good at parsing these Buffalo NAS systems. However you might want to try RecblaiMe as well.
