I – Recover Files From Corrupted ISCSI Lun Partition.

An IT manager in Turkey request help from me about his ISCSI on Qnap seems as RAW / Unallocated file system and he couldnt reach his datas. When I asked him why this error may accure, he said he tried to use his ISCSI on windows 2003 server to windows 2008 server.

After a little research (around 2-3 hours :)) , I find how to recover these files back again.

Also must warn you about this is not Qnap failure, its Windows server failure but if you or your costumer make a mistake like this, here you can recover this files by this way;

1 – Plug you ISCSI to any windows OS with ISCSI initiator;

2 – Download and install Easus Partition Master full version or Home Edition. (Dont install its Demo Verison!)

3 – Simply run program, choose your RAW / Unallocated Qnap ISCSI part, and press “proceed”;

4 – After a short check (less than 1 minute) , you can reach all of your datas;

Dont forget, you cant use your windows server 2003 ISCSI direclty to another Windows!

    hi to all

    Have the same issue on a Synology ISCSI drive also like this and what I’ve done was only, follow the example using the software EaseUS Partition Master 11.0, and then select the ISCSI drive and execute the “check partition” and leave the “chkdsk” activated, don’t activate the “Surface Test”.
    After the chkdsk start and found errors, my second workststion connected immediately.
    Hope that this little explanation could help someone
    Thanks to you all
