What software is normally used to read the data from the Hard drives in a RAID 5 environment on a Terastation live.

Originally I had called Buffalo and they told me if there was ever a hardware issue, the data could easily be read using a particular Linux software/tool that could piece together the RAID 5 information from the drives as long as I had them labeled. Does anyone remember what software or tool that originally was?

A little background, I received an MCP communication error on my Terastation E00 I think however I was able to reset and get it to boot up without the error.

In the event that I am unable to copy all the data off the drive before the system crashes from this flaky processor, I would like to know that there is an option to read these drives.

Referring people to a data recovery specialist laboratory is like going to to the Emergency Room for a haircut. This is suppose to be when the drives physically broken and trying to recovery data from the internal plates not when the drives are perfectly fine and your RAID system breaks.

In any event, I am just looking for that RAID 5 software tool.

UFS Explorer is your friend in this case.
