Couldn't think of a place for this stuff, but here is some information I received from Buffalo Support on the RAID information:

These are DISK1 partition tables.

You can see it by using command 'mfdisk -c /dev/sda'

the /dev/sda1 is for system files (rootfs) which is RAID1.

the /dev/sda3 is data area which is: RAID1,5.

others are not RAID.

Recovering Data from Terastation Raid array

I have tried the PPC Ubuntu method on a G5 and a G4, but I cannot get it to detect the raid array.

I have managed to browse the files on a Windows PC using UFS explorer, but I am not sure that I am putting the drives in the right order, as when I look at it I get 2 XFS partitions and 2 unknown partitions.

If I browse the smaller XFS partition (0.36gb) I can see a standard linux folder structure.

If I browse the larger XFS partition (148.38gb), then I get an "Unable to read the directory" error...

Any ideas?
