My Lacie Quadra hard disk MAX external hard drive has stopped being recognized by my PC after a year. I tried everything and ended up opening the casing and extracting the two 1TB hard drives that come inside.
They are set up in a RAID-0 array (when assembled in the casing). I plug them both in my MoBo, and only one of them is recognized (the master) as a 2TB drive, the other one is required to be formatted and assigned with a drive letter, but I know this will delete my info, since a RAID-0 arrange splits the data between those two.
I was told I could get my data out by using Ubuntu (which I'm using now), but I do not know what steps to take in order to at least be able of seeing my files again.
I can see both disks in Ubuntu's disk utility, and it says the same: only the master disk is recognized as a 2TB one, the other one is stated as "unrecognized".
It was effectively in raid 0. I used the "Raid recovery" tool, but I still needed to find out the stripe size (which after a lot of research was set to 64kb). It did recover some things, mostly deleted files and non-important files. It never recovered the "arrange" itself, and everything was organized in such a weird folder structure.
I'm still researching about the mdadm Linux functionality, but I've had no luck so far.
