apple tv hardrive remains intact post-install?

Recently suffered a major hardrive meltdown on my iMac. Did have a backup, but still missing about a month or two of photos, which conveniently sit on my AppleTV, inaccessible from my current iTunes library of course. Haven’t made a new sync yet obviously.

Was wondering if I purchase and install this clever little device, will I be able to recover my photos from that AppleTV and FTP them back to my iMac. Or will the installation of the aTV Flash, erase my AppleTV hard drive?

Yes, you will be able to recover your photos with the aTV Flash installed. The aTV Flash will leave all your media intact during installation.
