    Within a 6 week period, my NAS hard drives failed, and my MBP was stolen.

    I now have a new MBP but my drives have been with the recovery company for 2 months and they are telling me it may not be possible to recover all the data.

    That means there is a significant possibility that I will lose my 35GB music collection along with everything else.

    Could someone recommend me some good software to recover my music from my iPhone? I'm sure there are lots, but I would like one that keeps all of the information like artist, title, track number, artwork etc in place when recovering, and each album etc in different folders if that is possible.

    Any suggestions?

    iMazing & iExplorer are good. I have iMazing and it has worked good for me.

    I know this advice doesn't help you RIGHT NOW, but please consider for the future...

    In the future, DON'T use NAS, RAID, or Time Machine for your backups.

    Instead, "keep it simple".
    Use a USB3 external drive and CarbonCopyCloner (or SuperDuper) to create a bootable clone of your internal drive. Better yet, make TWO cloned copies. Keep one "close by", and store the other one "off-site".

    This will keep all your "stuff" on drives that are "immediately accessible" in "plain old finder format" -- just connect your backup and copy one file or the entire drive.

    MUCH easier, and far fewer headaches...

    Thanks all for your help. I used iMazing in the end, worked a treat!

    The NAS had RAID 1 mirroring, but I think I toppled the box over and the impact damaged both drives. The company is still working on them.

    I have since upgraded to a 4 bay NAS with RAID5 for much more superior redundancy, so too late for your advice, but we'll see how it goes!
