You must have enabled that option :-( If you didnt export the key to something then you are all done.

If you have the key then

Code:
INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO DECRYPT AN ENCRYPTED SHARE ON SYNOLOGY NAS SYSTEMS USING A LINUX PLATFORM
1) Create a mount point on your linux platform e.g. /mnt/synology - sudo mkdir /mnt/synology
2) Mount the encrypted drive or directory at this mount point; here's how if it's a synology network share: mount -t cifs -o username=TYPE THE USER LOGIN NAME FOR THE SHARE HERE,password=TYPE THE LOGIN PASSWORD HERE //NAS_SERVER_IP/ENCRYPTED VOLUME /mnt/synology
This will mount the encrypted share to /mnt/synology; check you can see the content by typing ls -l /mnt/synology.
3) Now make another mount point, this time it's for the decrypted content - sudo mkdir /mnt/synology_decrypt
4) Install ecryptfs-utils on your linux platform (sudo apt-get install ecryptfs-utils).
5) Now mount the encrypted volume at the new mount point using this command:
mount -t ecryptfs /mnt/synology_decrypt
6) At the prompt, enter the passphrase or password (not the exported key) you used to encrypt the volume on synology originally.
7) Choose AES as the cipher.
8) Select 32bit.
9) Choose no for plain text passthrough.
10) Choose yes for filename encryption.
11) Your decrypted content will be accessible at the new mount point: cd /mnt/synology_decrypt/

http://gparted.org/ Create an ISO boot into the live image, format the drives isntalled to NTFS or FAT then boot off your windows CD and go about installing windows like normal.

That would wipe the data he's trying to save...

Try Opensource EXT2explore or Diskiinternals Free Linux reader. though I generally use a live linux cd (boot from disk directly to a linux desktop) like ubuntu

Turns out synology encrypts the drives --____--- any idea on how to decrypt them?
