Locked myself out of my NAS




i have the following build:


Mainboard: Asrock J3455 ITX Motherboard
RAM: 4 GB RAM - 1 Slot used
HDD: 10 TB WD White (from an External WD Case)
Onboard NIC: Disabled in BIOS (not showing up in DSM 6.2.2).
Current NIC: USB 3.0 to Ethernet
NIC Chip: ASIX AX 88179


I have enabled the the 2-Factor-Authentication with the Google Authenticator app. Now my phone has broken and the Google Authenticator App is lost. I have no active Sessions on the Server.

I can not login with my Username, because Google want the 2-Factor-Code. Also the Backup-E-Mail is not working. I am not getting the E-Mail with a backup code.


Do you have any ideas how I can regain Access to my NAS again? Can I reset my Account / 2-Factor-Authentication with a boot flag? Unfortunately I have no SSH Access enabled.


In the worst case. Is it possible to reinstall the Server without losing the Data?
