Well I know this isn't the most popular drive especialy due to the in-bred DRM but I felt it would meet my needs, and it was on sale. (woo hoo)
So, I just set it up today and am playing with it, and I accidently deleted about 2 gigs of files already.
Well, I started with the obvious and checked my recycle bin. Nope. Ok, I have a copy of getdataback that has saved my bacon in the past. Hmm, only for NTFS. Ok, I DL a trial of it for linux. Seems like a good idea. Nope. Apparently you have to install a host and a remote application on each computer. Well, the drive isn't a computer per se, more of a quasi-nas box. Now what??? I won't write anything else to this drive in the hopes of recovering the 2 gigs or so of data.
Here is how I installed the drive, I didn't use the mionet software.
(geez there has to be a way to shorten that link, but I don't know how, sorry)
Here is what WD has to say about it
A rundown of it says that when the files are deleted, they are gone. But it also mentions MioNet which I am not actually using.
Either way, I know the data is still THERE I just can't get it.
Thanks a BUNCH!
