iRecover NAS Data Recovery Software
Through support of the EXT en XFS file systems, and md-raid configurations as commonly used in NAS devices, iRecover is capable of data recovery from NAS disks and NAS RAID arrays. Popular NAS devices are manufactured by QNAP, NETGEAR, Synology, WD MyBook and LaCie.

As iRecover needs direct access to disks involved, so they need to be taken out of the NAS device and attached to a PC on which you run Windows and iRecover. There are many Youtube guides available that can assist you in disassembling your NAS. NAS devices are typically prepared for swapping out disks. The availability of SATA ports on a typical PC may be more problematic.  Label disks and bays when you take them out of the NAS so you can put them back if required.

Even in In case of severely damaged NAS RAID arrays iRecover can help, however you may need to resort to the RAID recovery procedure.
