Short version: i have a NAS device i bought on impulse. It works fine. However, the ONLY file system it supports, is linux based XFS. I need to find an operating system that i can run in a VM or boot from a live CD, that will allow me to access the data on these drives should the NAS fail. I've tried the latest ubuntu - and failed. it didnt see the drive(s) appear when connected to the system. Can someone suggest alternative operating systems i can try? i'm quite the beginner with linux. ALL i want is something that reads XFS hard drives from this stupid buffalo NAS, and will allow me to copy them to other drives.
