RAID5, failed 3 out of 5.


For the mdadm RAID5 set up using 5 disks, if the 2 disks failed, can we still retrieve the data?
mdadm assemble from the 3 disks does not work, so i guess I cannot add the new disks using mdadm, right?

Have you specified number of spare disk, if not. I think you will not recover data by when two disk failed.
RAID 5 can work with 3 disk also. and you add extra disk using mdadm

Thnks
