Hello, I have a problem. I helped a colleague retrieve files on a linux raid 1 array from a linux server. I only had half the array and accessed it with Parted Magic (Ubuntu couldn't read the partition).

I copied the content to an NTFS drive, but I can't find the particular files. Mind you, I never use Linux, so I just did what little I could do to access the drive.

I've seen there's a huge 100GB file called Repository with no extension, is it possible the shared files are in there? All the clients are Windows so the files are Office documents.

I looked into Samba config file and it points to a shared folder which isn't there.
