Windows-based solution

I used Paragon ExtFS to get the files off my Seagate Central that the board crapped out on. Simply connect your Segate Central drive (open up the enclosure and remove the drive) via sata, download and run Paragon ExtFS (free), mount the drive in Paragon ExtFS, then open windows explorer and copy the folders/files. Folder structure is maintained, which is a nice plus over some of the other approaches.

Update: Paragon ExtFS also worked for me, instantly! You can access using the trial but I'd suggest investing the $20 for the full product.
