RAIDFS is a proof of concept tool to allow for the recovery of RAID arrays with failed controllers, repaired component disks, and the like where the data on the disks are intact, but for what ever reason, the RAID is no longer recognized. It is meant as a supplement for other tools to help recover lost data. Right now it is in a rudimentary “proof of concept” state and is pre-alpha; however, it can recover Compaq style left handed, asymmetrical, RAID 5 arrays with the delayed/iterative rotation, which the current Linux RAID 5 driver cannot. When reassembling, it makes single virtual file in the mount point which is the reassembled RAID image. No data is moved during the mount, so it is quite fast, allowing for multiple recovery attempts without a long reassembly process.
