Hello askubuntu forums,
I’m trying to recover data from a 6 drive NAS set up. I’ve tried using mdadm to examine, configure, and mount some drives from this array, but nothing is working. I’ve got two of the drives plugged into an USB drive mount.
I can see what partition has data using fdisk. Anytime I’ve tried to mount anything though it will either tell me “Unknown filesystem type ‘linux_raid_member'” or tell me that the drive is already active. Been trying to do this all day and I’m hoping someone here can help me out. Thanks in advance.
