I installed a new router (airport 4th gen to new netgear 6300) and all went well.

I also installed a new seagate central NAS.

My challenge - copying data from old USB drive which used to be connected to airport extreme.. It is looking for credentials and I'm not sure what those would be?

Any ideas? I'm currently thinking I'll need to reinstall old router temporarily and move things around that way..

thanks in advance for any better ideas.

What kind of data and what format is it in? Is this from a networked Time Machine backup?

figured it out..

It was just networked data..

I figured it out.. for some reason the rights on the drive were custom.
I was able to change the permissions with a simple right-click and then I could move the data from a locally connected mac to the new NAS.

thanks for your help though..
