I have a RAID1 array of two drives created with mdadm. Is it possible to remove one of the drives, hook it up to a USB SATA adapter, and safely mount it, get the info off of it, and return the drive?
I have a computer that served as a fileserver for a number of years, and I've had it off for the past year. The power supply sounds pretty bad when I turn it on now, and the bootup is slow enough to make me worry. I'd rather not fry my equipment and lose my data, so does USB sound like a viable solution?
How do I safely mount a member of a RAID1, mdadm-created array on USB of another computer?
I'm using Ubuntu for the old computer, something like 09.10, and 11.04 on the working computer.
