Just bought a solid state drive to replace two aging drives. My two drives have appeared, for the last four years, as a single striped (Raid 1) drive to my system, via software raid.
After a fresh installation of UbuntuStudio 12.04 on the solid state drive, it's time to migrate data. But how to mount the two old drives?
Turns out it was ridiculously easy. I simply installed mdadm, rebooted, and there was my Raid 1 drive.
When did it get so easy? I remember the good (bad?) old days when I'd be posting three pages of technical details to resolve such a problem.
