This is problem on my Link Station Mini (LS-WS series) since last power on 3-4 months ago. I have tried my best to check the power and am 100% sure the power 5V 3A is coming correctly via original adaptor, however it still off. I decided to remove the disks and have a back-up to replicate all data insides to other disks. However, I believe I don't have right tool to read the harddisk and not sure what disk format LS-WS it uses.

Does anyone know how can what filesystem it uses? as I only have a windows based PC, what tool allows me to access the file and then be able to copy them to other harddisk?
Regards & much appreciated,

All the Linkstations use XFS for the data partition.
Use a Linux Live CD like "System Rescue CD".

Please do not use private mail (PN/M) to ask questions. Use the proper forum instead. (me)

If there is no verified backup of a dataset, the dataset, by definition, is unimportant. (c't 2012)

RAID (no matter which level) never ever substitutes a backup. (me)
