RAID 5 file structure question.
Posted on 2007-09-27
I have a question about RAID 5 functionality. Lest suppose that I have a system running 3 hard drives on a RAID 5. Now lets suppose that I want look at the file structure of 1 particular disk only, so I will shutoff the system and take 1 drive out of the RAID system and now I'm going to connect that disk on a different computer with a SAS controller. am'i going to see the hard drive content? what portion of the RAID I'm going to see? All I need is to extract some data from the disk, I don't expect to boot from the disk, I just want to have access to the file structure.
For those who has more experience with RAID 5, please help.
