My USB is dead, and my USB backup, app backup is all on encrypted drive.

 

What are steps to get back up and running?

 

My idea is to create a new bootable USB, start UNRAID, then de-crypt the drives, then restore USB configuration from backup.

Is that the right sequence?

 

Also how do I find out the order of my drives. I only have parity drive (10TB) and 2 discs (4TB and 2TB). So I KNOW which is parity drive.

How do I find out sequence of other drives?

For a one parity drive array, the allocation of data drives is not important.

It is crucial for two parity drives setup however.

 

Your strategy for recovery looks good to me, but I do not know the specifics of encrypted drives as I do not use them.

It seems that you are good to proceed as you know which drive is parity.

This process works.
