I have the NAS200 with a single drive. I would like to remove this drive from the NAS200 unit and use it accessing the same files on a removable USB adapter.
If i simply remove the drive and plug it into the usb caddy, the computer can see the drive, but cannot read any of the info on the drive....
Anything i can do to make this work?

The NAS200 uses ext2 for non-journaled partitions and XFS for journaled partitions. You should be able to read it with a Linux machine that supports these file systems. Under Windows, there's a program called ext2ifs which works with ext2 but I'm unaware of any Windows solutions for XFS at this time.

I was trying to access the drive through OSX, which doesn't support the file system. After reading your reply, i hooked her up to my linux box and everything was kosher.
Thank you for the help. I should have RTFM... =P.
