Question Can I read data from a disk, out of a Linux RAID 1?

Hi all,

I have a small machine using two disks, mounted as a Linux Raid autodetect, in RAID1 mode.

The CPU of the server burnt. So I need to get some precious data back.

Is there a way to connect one disk and read the content ?

I tried to plug one disk on a PC and mount it.
However, "mount" does not recognize the filesystem.
And reading the man, "linux raid autodetect" is not listed in the filesystem supported.

Do you know a way to get my data out ?
