Linux mdadm RAIDs
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).
If recognized components of a mdadm RAID, including disk images, are added to Restorer Ultimate later, it automatically adds them to their respective mdadm RAID.
When an automatically created mdadm RAID is selected, Restorer Ultimate highlights its components.
Restorer Ultimate shows the components of the mdadm RAIDs on its LVM Components tab. Control-click the mdadm RAID and select Setup mdadm Components on the contextual menu.
Restorer Ultimate shows broken mdadm RAIDs in pink.
The mdadm Components tab also allows you to manually disconnect or connect the components, for example, if they are such damaged that Restorer Ultimate cannot recognize them as parts of a broken mdadm RAID. Select the object from the drop-down box and click the Connect button. Restorer Ultimate displays the objects it recognizes as the components of the mdadm RAID in blue.
You may immediately switch to the mdadm RAID configuration that Restorer Ultimate believes most probable by clicking the Reassemble button.
