Please help! Big trouble here!

I have a time capsule that I used wrongly - for backups and storing files. Something happened some time ago and all the users are not accessible anymore - I think I might have changed some settings (from one user to multiple) at some point to create more users and basically my data that is stored there is locked away and I can't access it anymore. The used space is shown on the TC so I know that it's there.

I have no usb of the size of 2tb and hoping to find another workaround. I do have a synology and I thought that by connecting them together via ethernet I could copy/recover all "invisible" data but no success so far.
Any other ways to solve it?!

Any help greatly appreciated!
