Our customer has a Win 2019 system that was removed as node 2 from a 2-node cluster.

We are hoping we can access some of the data on the disks.  The disks were part of an S2D cluster.  When we bring the server up and look at the storage system, the pool and a volume is defined.  But nothing else is, and nothing is accessible.  It all shows in a degraded state of course.

But is there a way to pull data off of those disks?
