Kind of off topic here, But if you ever need to get files off of a hard drive easily, you can get a docking station that a desktop drive plugs right into and the dock is connected to a PC with USB. You can get the files just like you would off a flash drive. I use one to backup my files because I do not like those silly portable drives that have always failed me. I just buy a full size drive and use it like a flash drive with the dock
That's what I'm doing to back up my data at the moment. I have a Synology NAS, too, but it stopped booting up, giving error beeps a while back, and I haven't put the effort into reviving it. I did like it functioning as a DLNA server for my different media files. But for backup purposes, yeah, I find the hard drive in a dock super-easy. I think it's SyncToy that I used to schedule an automatic backup based on what files have changed.
