The fix was a variation of your answer: sudo mount.cifs 192.168.140.2:/gob /home/jason/gob/ after creating /home/jason/gob.

Hmm, I don't think it needs or wants a username/password. If you look at my edit on my question, the mount command in the ReadyNAS documentation doesn't use one. If I take the username part out of your command, I still get the same error as when I try the command from the ReadyNAS docs.

No, I don't. Apparently I should?

Yes, it's sharing using CIFS. As for "mounting the box that way," can you really spell it out for me? I'm new to this. Thanks.

That sounds perfect. Thanks. For the "secure" rack, any certain model(s) you'd recommend?

Our main priority is protecting our data against theft. If vandals break into the office and mess with our stuff, that would be annoying but it wouldn't be a disaster. Our six employees can be trusted not to touch stuff.

Looks like there's probably not a simple answer to my question (because there's more than one way to do it) but I think this points me in the right direction. I think what I want to do now is figure out the best way to restore "most of" my files from my backup. Thanks for the help.

@mfinni: I just mean some other computer, not anything to do with a bare metal recovery. As for simply copying files from the Backup share, if that's the way it's generally done, I guess that's what I'll do, but I don't know how to do it. Would I want to try to rsync into my ReadyNAS or what?

@Cry Havok: My question was worded badly in the other post and the discussion there was a waste of your time and mine. If you don't like the way I'm going about trying to fix the problem, feel free to spend your time helping other people instead.

@Chopper3: That's a good question and I have a good reason: my original question was unclear and, because I asked the question badly, the answers I was getting were fundamentally missing the point.
