Actually if you have the old one running windows server 2000, it does. Monitor and keyboard in the back with bios options to allow a ps/2 mouse. Any issues they have should be able to be fixed via that setup. Mine on the other hand will not boot past the Win Server 2000 splash screen. Good luck to all.

The connections are located on the back under plastic covers.

The Maxtor 4300 does NOT allow you to connect a physical keyboard, mouse or monitor. It does allow you to connect rj45.

Since no one has posted on this I?ll give you my best guess. Disclaimer, I don?t have one of these, Maxtor is now owned by Seagate, they have discontinued support and I can?t find a manual. Having said all of that from what I?ve read this runs Windows 2000 server and allows you to physically connect a keyboard, mouse and monitor to it. I would try connecting these external devices to the box, boot up and try logging in. If you literally don?t know ANY of the passwords you can try booting the system with a utility tool that will find and remove the administrator password. There are several of them readily available (usually Linux based) available for free, here is the link for one: That will allow you to log into the operating system and configure it as you wish. Be aware that this is not supported by Microsoft and could wind up corrupting the operating system. At that point the only option would be to rebuild the server software from scratch. Good luck and let us know how it goes or if you have any other questions.

I need to reset the ix4-200R to its factory settings but the reset button doesnt work.

When you say the reset button doesn't work, do you mean just pressing it doesn't do it? Try holding it down for over 30 seconds.

I picked up a Fastora NAS-T4, but the previous owner no longer recalls the root password on the device. Is there anyway to reset the device to factory defaults? I see no 'reset' buttons available on it.

Turn off the NAS.
Press AND HOLD power button for about 30 secs.
That will force a hard reset and reset the unit to factory defaults. You will lose all data on drives that are plugged in at the moment. If they are in an ejected state, it may save your data, but I have not tried that.

Self Testing

Ouch... You didn't say who's NAS device it is? It sounds like you may have a firmware issue on controller. You may need to reset the controller to the factory defaults. I'd suggest that you contact the manufacturer for details on how to do so. They should also have details on how to recover your data. If you can let us know what kind of a NAS device it is, maybe we can find more details on it.
