I have Fedora28 running and I need to run a backup pretty soon or I maybe in trouble lol

I have a Western Digital "My Book" NAS which I am sure I have mounted via the Files App in previous versions of Fedora.... But now, I cannot see it but it is on the network fine So, guys.. Help please.. I need to find this device and mount it so I can run a backup.. The File system on the NAS is FAT from what I remember.... How do I find it and mount it please.. Thanks in advance as ever

I assume the NAS uses „Windows shares“, so you need to install samba. Do a “dnf search samba“ and you will find the packages you need.
