Saving to network storage results in Error create SELECT By LBA query? Any fix?

Don't Lose Your Data Forever!

DIY data recovery has risks. You could lose your data forever! Don't want to risk it? Talk to a professional now.


I am migrating from local storage to a NAS, and I have the drive mounted in windows. Whenever I save images to the NAS, I get this error in PC3K, I tried googling it but couldn't find a solution. Is there any way to make Data Extractor play nicely with NAS storage? This is Windows 10 with a NFS mount, though I notice the same happens on SMB.

This error only happens when making maps or trying to expand the file tree. The imaging itself works fine, and I can even mount the drive into other tools like r-studio without issue. Here's the error I get:

TNTFSObject.Init - Error: Error create SELECT By LBA query! Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service

NAS is file-level storage. PC-3000 requires block-level storage. The only way it'll play nice with a network device is probably to use it as an iSCSI target and allow for block-level access.

I don't know if your NAS supports creating iSCSI targets. The more expensive ones usually do.

This is why I use all DAS storage with an SFF-8088 cable right from my RAID card to the external drive rack.


Aah ok that explains the difficulty. Bummer, I can't use this current NAS for it then, but it will still be useful for backups. It's interesting that most of the data extractor functionality is fine. For example, I can create a task, image a drive, etc but maps and file explorer are the only place it doesn't work. I can even copy that image folder back to regular storage and then boom mapping works again.
