Topic: recover files from an xfs hard drive
first in short, my personal backround:
I have never programmed anything in my life. most of what I have ever done, was to simply "copy and paste" someting that was already finished. also my english is very bad, please excuse that to.
my Sister was using an olderr Buffalo NAS Station, it felt down and broke.
like the idiot I am, there was no backup data elsewhere and i didnt even tried to repair the NAS.
I simply took out the hard drive and connected it directly with my pc. and who could imagine that... -.- windows could not read the format.
so as my online research advised me, i downloadet GParted and tried to recover the data on it.
GParted told me that the biggest partition on the hard drive was written in xfs, so i tried to search for file systems on it.
GParted found data, I tried to fiew it and the error window showed up with the message:
"v1 inodes unsupported. please try an older xfsprogs"
Please if anyone can help me in a way, that even a monkey behind a keyboard could understand the different steps, i would be very pleased
the data is very importand for me, if i get it back, i would be pleased to spend something for the future development of GParted.
a nice day to all!
