RAID 5 recovery?
I came home to that unfortunate experience post vacation of a busted water line that had been running for 3-5 days. It started in the master bath, took out half of the 2nd floor, then entire first floor, and the basement.
While it was taking this all out, it dripped into my media server.
SO... I am in the process of trying to see if anything is recoverable.
First things first.
The power supply seems to work (will be replacing anyways)
but the mother board seems pretty well fried.
I had 1 SSD for my boot drive and 4X4TB WD Red drives for storage.
I had an ASRock Z77 Extreme3 motherboard and was running the RAID off of this.
So the questions.
1. If I buy a new ASRock Z77 Extreme 3 motherboard and plug all the drives in, and if they weren't damaged, can I rebuild the RAID without data loss?
2. Can I do this with a newer motherboard if I wanted to upgrade, but not lose all of my data.
3. Any suggestions.
Thanks as usual,
I just haven't had to deal with this one ever, and I hope you don't either.
