    Re: HOWTO: Linux Software Raid using mdadm

    Still not got anywhere with this..
    Anyone will to help a bit ?

    I've run a couple of Raid scanning apps and they are showing my data, so there is some hope.
    I just need to find a way to get at it..

    DiskInternal Raid Recovery seems to show my data, but that costs £299.00
    A lot of money for a home user..

    can anyone help ?

    Thanks

    Re: HOWTO: Linux Software Raid using mdadm

    This is from my personal notes (your disks and devices will be different):
    mdadm --examine --scan /dev/sda1 /dev/sda2 >> /etc/mdadm.conf
    The lines in the mdadm.conf file should look like this:
    ARRAY /dev/md0 level=raid1 num-devices=3 UUID=e03a952e:5ed1a43c:c79e3f2b:927be822

    Use mdadm /dev/md0 --add /dev/sdc1 to add
    If you have an existing software raid, you may have to create a new md:
    MAKEDEV md4
    mdadm -C /dev/md4 -l 1 -n 2 missing /dev/sdb1
    if you have an existing disk that *was* on USB and put it in PATA, you may have
    a device node that is incorrect. This will have mdadm saying "device is too small".
    Fix it by deleting the device and making the new node:
    mknod /dev/sdb1 b 8 18
    but make sure the minor (last no) doesn't conflict.

    Your md and devices are, apparently
    /dev/sdb2 is md0
    /dev/sdb4 is md1
    /dev/sdb6 is md3

    Re: HOWTO: Linux Software Raid using mdadm

    The disk is an XFS disk
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XFS

    Using either

    NAS Data Recovery
    http://www.runtime.org/nas-recovery.htm

    or
    Raise Data Recovery for XFS 5.8
    http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/...-for-XFS.shtml

    I can see my data.. Raise is only around £20.00 for a licence.
    So that seems to be the way to go.

    Hope this helps someone else.

    XFS is in the Linux kernel - I just checked CONFIG_XFS_FS is in the kernel config file, so if you have a Linux system you should be able to read those raid systems.
