How can I read hard drives from an OMNINAS Shuttle on a PC?


You can also use a PC should you wish to access the contents of a hard drive written in an OMNINAS Shuttle (e.g. KS10 KD20, KD21, KD22) and no longer have the NAS model originally used to hand. However, this is not yet possible using Windows add-ons alone and you will need one of the following third-party programs. You can only read disks created as SINGLE or RAID-1. You cannot normally read disks created with JBOD and RAID-0 configurations.

Please note: Shuttle cannot accept responsibility for loss of data and damage caused by the use of the following programs:

Disk Doctors XFS Data Recovery

Captain Nemo Pro

Stellar Phoenix XFS Data Recovery

XFS Data Recovery Studio
