Network drive or NAS (Network Attached Storage) drive is gaining popularity for storing and sharing data in a home or office network. This is because they provide a convenient and quick way to increase the available storage space. However, like other storage drives, network drives are also subject to failure, crash, and so on. And, under all these situations you lose important data stored on the drive.
Although NAS drive looks similar to other external storage devices, they don’t function in the same manner. NAS device is more complex, featuring internal RAID arrays. So recovering data from network drive is not so easy. Moreover, you cannot recover a file after a simple deletion because it doesn’t go to the Recycle Bin. This is because Windows doesn’t delete the file; it tells the NAS OS to delete it. However, you can enable Recycle bin on network drives in simple steps adn avoid data loss due to deletion.
