Fixing the filesystem

I have a problem with my file system which needs some low level attention. I'd like to run e2fsck, but I can't figure out how to directly access the underlying OS. The web based user interface doesn't have any real support features. Is there any way to do this?

How do I get my files back?

It seems your OS on the NAS has being destroyed some how (maybe a power failure or unattended shutdown...). To recover your files from the broken NAS, I suggest to open your NAS and get the HDD out. Most NAS works with a special embedded Linux system, so it's possible the internal HDD to have ext2, ext3 or ext4 structure wich is completely readable if you connect the extracted NAS's HDD to a desktop of any kind and boot from a Live CD as PartedMagic. Once you boot that LiveCd, you could mount the existent partitions on the extracted NAS HDD (and attached to the system that you've just booted) and recover your files from it. Also you could check the NAS HDD to see what's going wrong with him, also from inside the PartedMagic. For that, you need some Linux skills, but don't be afraid: it's much easy than you figure... And, as final suggestion, mount the NAS's HDD founded partitions as READ-ONLY, to prevent them to be erased/deleted by accident.

Forgot password and cannot access drive. will pushing reset button cause me to lose all my files of just allow me to set new log on credentials

AS device requires that you downgrade to some obsolete level of security. Doesn't the vendor have documentation for exactly what is needed to make this work with Windows 7?

The data sheet I found seems to imply it's a really old device: "Compatible with Windows 95/98/98SE/ME/XP/2000/NT4.0".
you had to reset the drive back to factory default and reconfigure the users and accesses. The HD does not reformat when set back to factory defaults so no data was lost.
I wonder how many of these drives have been replaced just because the onboard processor needed to be reset.

Only the LAN Manager Authentication Level Change to Send NTMLv2 to Send LM & NTLMv2 session if negotiated was needed.

Dave thanks the suggestion to do a comparison during that process is when I thought of doing the reset to factory defaults.

Buffalo LS CH1.0TL not recognised by computer on IP or USB

If you are using a Windows OS to access the drive, you will be unable to read the filesystem on this drive, as Windows cannot read XFS file systems which Buffalo uses.

Try downloading/booting off of a Linux live cd (knoppix, ubuntu, etc), they are free for download from their respective websites, and should be able to read that XFS partition.

Loss of system access - no chance to backup data before fw-upgr.

It may be possible to remove the drive(s) and put them in another system and from that system using those drives as data only drives (not boot) to copy any files which are needed to be backed up.

I have done this a number of times (please note that I am talking about single desktop systems here), every time it has work like a charm.
If the drives are IDE, you need to set one drive at a time (if more than one IDE) as the slave drive. Once the drives are correctly set, then proceed to start the system and copy your data to the media you want.
If the drives are scsi, set them accordingly on another system and number them as slaves or non-boot in the scsi controller bios.
Then copy from your slave or non-boot drive(s) to the media you want to put your data.
If you are using a system with some configuration other than single drives...such as some kind of RAID. then you need other help.

CanĀ“t use INTEL SS4000-E to host the files of my database from SQL SERVER 2000

The SS4000-E  is a NAS storage server.  To the best of my knowledge it is not possible to put database files on a NAS.  They need to do on Direct Attached Storage.

I saw on ebay they had some Brand New Diskless versions and One Used Working one. I know it is not a fix but a lot cheaper than the $1200-$1500 they used to be.
