Recovering Data from Seagate Central NAS Drive

Real Time Scenario:

“Few weeks’ back I purchased the Seagate Central NAS drive of 3TB storage capacity, power went on and off a few times… I was waiting for my Seagate to reload itself- but it is never loaded and thus I cannot read anything on the drive at all.

Suggest some idea to get back data from NAS drive easily…”
