Wd mybook world II recovery

Last response: in Storage

I mistakenly erased a WD Mybook World II share-folder and need to recover the files.

I have the drive connected to a Linux server running Testdisk. Found some directory structure but cannot locate the data folders - it's different than the original mybook world (blue ring) drive - which I've done this proceedure on before.

Any suggestions on where to look?

Thanks for the suggestion Billy.

I erased the "share folder" using the WD web interface. I was there on purpose to erase a folder, but picked the wrong folder to erase. Big mistake.

I have the drive online with a linux server, I can see folders and such. My issue was finding the folder location on the drive where files are stored. This is a newer "white light" version, and the directory structure is not at all like the older "blue ring" version.

Anyone with a white light version out there who knows what I mean?
