Re: Get out data of a raid disk

I have used a standalone bootable linux CD such as Knoppix to recover from situations like this .
Download the iso image - burn to a cd - boot from the cd and mount the windows filesystem in question (uses cciss or cpqarray driver).

Then you want to copy all the data off to another host - you'll need a target host that has ssh and plenty disk space on it and run something like
# find /some/path -print | sort | cpio -o -Hnewc | ssh -C other.host "cpio -idvum"

This will traverse the filesystem and copy off everything to your other machine.

Hope this helps
