Accessing old data
« on: September 03, 2019, 11:56:32 am »
Have been advised that my Linkstation is unrepairable due to total loss of power.

If I purchased another Linkstation would I be able to just pop my old disks in from the unrepairable linkstation and be able to access my data?
I also had a usb disk and a raid Drivestation connected to my Linkstation making them all accessable over my network.
Have connected these directly to my pc now but not showing up.
Would these reappear if I connected these to the new Linkstation as before?
Obviously I do need a backup but don't want to buy another Linkstation for nothing.
Is there any other way to recover my data?

Any advise greatly appreciated

If it's the same model that should work but not if it's a different model.
