I know there are similar questions to this but none specific to RAID 10 extracted from a NAS, so any help is greatly appreciated.
So, basically the NAS is kaput but the drives are ok. Following the advice of the Seagate tech who basically said that replacing the NAS would format the drives upon start-up I want to connect the drives to a Linux PC and use MDADM to create a software array and recover the data.
The problem is I have no idea how to use MDADM and influenced from other horror stories I do not want to risk using the wrong command and corrupting the data.
Based on what I have read I should connect the drives via SATA to my linux PC, boot up, open a root terminal and run the following:
mdadm --assemble --scan
And then magically the drive will appear in the file manager and I can just copy the files?
Am I missing something or is this too easy? Also, is the command ok?
Thanks for helping ;)
