A friend of mine has a NS2 which partly failed. The disk is fine, but I think the PCB is broken.
I am now accessing the disk with Ubuntu and already copied the shares folder to another external drive.

There should also be a myshares folder which seems to be hidden. How can I get access to this folder?
I have the password which was used to access the disk with windows.

Thanks in advance.

this folder will be on partition 2 , you need to mount partition 2 (xfs) to see the content

At the moment I see /dev/sdc2 which is xfs according to Ubuntu and the size displayed is 998gb, so my guess is that myshares must be on this part too.
It's a 1 TB disc after all. Or I am missing something?

thanks!

Invisible? Do you mean the 'usb share'?

No, I mean the folder "myshares", for which one a password is required (in Windows). I don't see it now, only the folders that had no password, the "shares" folder.

Linux doesn't have 'invisible' directories. Yet they can be 'hidden'. In that case the name starts with a dot. Most file browsers have an option 'show hidden files'.

Using 'df' you can see how much disk space is used. If that fits the amount of files you already copied, you already found it.

The login needed for samba access is not important here. The OS protecting the files is not running. Your current OS doesn't care about credentials setup by configuration files which are not in use.

Thanks for the clarification. It is becoming clear now!
