    I have a NSA210 on my home network and it has stopped working because SMBv1.0 has been removed in update 1709 from my Windows 10. I have data on my 2TB AD SATA drive within the NSA210, how can I get this off the drive and onto a new NAS?

    Hi Andrew. I had the same issue. You need to activate SMBv1 in windows to get access to the data. I extracted my data by connecting to a switch without WAN-access just to be sure, and copied the data to a newer NAS-device. When copy was complete i discarded my old NAS and support for newer SMB-versions is the solution here... This powershell cmdlet solved the accessproblem for me:

    Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName smb1protocol

    Just remember to disable it again when you are done...

    Disable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName smb1protocol

    I'm amazed that not only did Zyxel never release an update to fix this problem but on top of that has not even considered releasing data to allow third-parties to resolve the problem on their own by writing new code for the devices.  Such a waste to condemn hardware that is still quite capable in today's environments but completely insecure so instead of fixing it our choice is to open up our systems to hacks, or throw the perfectly working NSA device into a landfill... horrible.
