It looks like the things you are working with are strings and
the portion of the string you are interested in lies between a
'[' character and ']' character. Further, the numbers you are
interested in seem to be separated by '/' characters. If I have
this write, what you want to achieve can be done as follows:

First, to get rid of the string parts of no interest

StringReplace[dataString, {RegularExpression@"^.+\["->"",RegularExpression@=

The result will be just the portion of the string between the
'[' character and ']' character. This assumes the characters '['
and ']' only occur once.

Now that you have just the string of numbers separated with '/'
characters you can use StringSplit to create a list of these
numbers as strings. That is


where stringPart is the portion of the original string that has
the numbers of interest.

Finally, the resulting list of strings can be converted to
numbers by mapping ToExpression to each of the strings.
