I'm trying to recover data from my Ready NasDuo which is Spark based with a 16kb block size. I've followed another post and successfully mounted the drive using a command like

sudo fuseext2 -o ro,allow_other /dev/sdb1 ~/mnt/external

However I can't access the directories that store my data. I can access some of the other directories though. Running ls -l gives me something like below. I'm trying to get into the directories highlighted in Red, for example media. If I try cd media I get a No Such File or Directory.

enter image description here

  • Just because I need to say it: don't write anything in / yourself, it's root's land over there. It seems like you created symlinks right into / (even though they're dead know). Commented Oct 23, 2014 at 21:54

    Your listing shows broken symlinks. Try using df to show all mounted file systems (show the output of df). It may be the symlink is pointing to the wrong place. Commented Oct 23, 2014 at 23:24

The symlinks appearing in red indicates "broken" links - i.e. the target does not exist.

This seems to indicate that whatever was providing /c is not mounted. You need to figure out the device that provides that data and mount it.

  • An ls -al will show where the symbolic link points +1 as this is the correct answer...
