How to recover data from physical disk if my unraid server is physically down

Hi

 

My unraid server is down due to a broken motherboard or PSU. 

 

I am going to take a break from the hardware repair and want to have access to the files on the unraid server. How can I do that, if I have another windows desktop to plug this disk to? 

 

Thanks.

All the array disks are free-standing file systems.    You can easily access them from any Linux system (perhaps by booting a Linux Live system), but if using a Windows system you need to have drivers for the file system being used.    You could also I guess use file recovery software like UFS Explorer to get files off the drives or perhaps Linux Reader software.
