Linux mdadm RAIDs

Top  Previous  Next

mdadm is a Linux utility used to manage and monitor software RAID devices.

Restorer Ultimate supports such devices and when drives from a mdadm RAID are connected to a Windows computer, it automatically detects them and assembles mdadm RAIDs accordingly.

Restorer Ultimate detects components from mdadm RAIDs and creates those RAIDs automatically. At the same time, Restorer Ultimate gives access to the components of those RAIDs (hard drives and images).

Broken mdadm RAIDs in Restorer Ultimate

If recognized components of a mdadm RAID are added to Restorer Ultimate (including disk images), Restorer Ultimate automatically adds them to their respective mdadm RAIDs.

When mdadm RAID components are such damaged that Restorer Ultimate cannot recognize them as components of broken mdadm RAIDs, you may add them manually. Right-click the required mdadm RAID, select Add missing disks on the shortcut menu and select the required object(s) on the Add missing disks dialog box.
