Is raid 5 data recoverable from dead Terastation?
Posted on 2011-09-12
I have a 1TB Terastation with four 250 GB drives configured raid 5. Recently, the Terastation became unreachable over the LAN. It appears to be starting up correctly as indicated by the front panel lights, however I cannot ping the unit.
I am sure the data is still there. I have the most important data backed up elsewhere, but there are some files that would be nice to have back that are not backed up (mostly music files).
Is it possible to remove the drives and install them in to another Linux box and mount these as a single volume, thereby making the files retrievable?
