Synology – Raid 5 recovery with 2 intact drives

admin 28 Jul , 2021 0 Comments data recovery

Hi everyone,

Short backstory – i have a synology NAS, with a variety of RAID-5 volumes. One of the RAID-5 volumes had a single drive fail, but for some reason (still trying to get an answer out of synology), the volume glitched and booted a second drive from the same volume out of the volume entirely. According to them, there's no way to put it back in the RAID-5 without re-initializing. This leaves me with two theoretically functioning RAID-5 drives, which should be enough to retrieve data from. But I've had no success trying a variety of products, including DiskInternals and Stellar.

Essentially, I just need to use the two good drives to mount/establish the RAID-5 volume again so I can pull data off it. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
