6342Re: Retrave data after firmware update
- Jan 28, 2008Many thanks for the help. I did everything you said and in the telnet
window it showed all my shares from previous as well as the new
default one "share" created after firmware upgrade.
I used the web interface to create a new share named the same as one
of the previous shares.
The share was visible on the linkstation through windows explorer but
no files in it. I tried it on another old share and same result.
I went back to telnet to try and access the folders but even though
all shares show up when typing "ls -a /mnt/disk1/" when I type "ls -a
/mnt/disk1/djpls/" (djpls is name of an old share, not recreated in
web interface) it says 'no such file or directory' I tried same with
one of the recreated shares and same result.
If I type 'ls -a /mnt/disk1/share' which is the new share created by
default, it lists ok.
Any further suggestions would be much appreciated.
