Hello All,

I am trying to setup software raid in Ubuntu, and yes this is my first time trying to do this. I followed this documentation to the letter. This is a clear install too btw. I have three hard drive in my computer. 1 500GB for the filling system, and 2 1TB for data storage. I setup the 2 1TB drive for raid 1, and the filling system like your normally would. My issue is that, I can't see/find my raid drives now. Even using the df command, I can't see the two raid drives.

Thanks again for the help in advance!

Superior storage. Superior surveillance.

I have just reinstalled the OS on a bigger 4 TB drive. This is not what I wanted, but it will have to do for now.
