I have a netgear readynas that simply went bad.  It had two 1tb SSD drives in it in a raid1 config.  I've been trying to mount one of the drives on another linux box to recover the data I can't get the drive to be recognized.  Apparently the netgear Readynas uses BTR file system (BTRFS).  

A) Does anyone know if it's possible to take a drive with btrfs out of a raid 1 config and mount it on another system to recover data.

B) If the answer to A is yes, then how?

What is the distro on that other Linux box? Make sure the btrfs-tools are installed on that distro, so you get the necessary support for that file-system. If you installed it without btrfs in the first place, those tools probably won't be included by default.

Actually I was able to get the NAS to boot into a read only recovery mode and was then able to access the data.
