This forum seems to be much more useful than the Snapraid forum, where I can't seem to find what I need (the navigation there is horrible compared to this forum).
I have Snapraid with 4 drives. One 1TB parity and three 1TB data disks as follows:
Recently the drive containing Data2 failed, and while I can see the Shared Folders, I can't get to anything in them. I have removed the bad drive (Data2), installed a new 2TB drive in its place (named 2TBData2sdb), tried running Fix in the GUI on that drive (as instructed). I have tried to follow the instructions in the "Snapraid in OMV User Guide" and the Snapraid Manual, but neither of these have produced results that allow me to see files. I have tried resetting permissions - no effect. There are references to copying data to an external USB drive - haven't been able to find guidance on that, and can't find how to even list files from the console. Have run Fix on the new drive, which the guide tells me to do in the GUI, but then it comes back with:
Disks '/srv/dev-disk-by-label-sdcdisk3/' and '/srv/dev-disk-by-label-sdddisk4/' are on the same device.
You can 'fix' anyway, using 'snapraid --force-device fix'.
So I go to the console (finally figured out that it couldn't be done from the GUI) and ran "spanraid -D fix", which returns the following:
"Self test ...
DANGER! Ignoring that disks 'Data3' and 'Data4' are on the same device
Disk '/srv/dev-disk-by-label-sdcdisk3/' and Parity '/srv/dev-disk-by-label-sdadisk1/snapraid.parity' are on the same device
I have no idea how THAT happened because I originally dedicated disk1 to parity.
When I run "Snapraid status" from the console, I get the following:
WARNING! Content files on the same disk: '/srv/dev-disk-by-label-sdadisk1/snapraid.content' and '/srv/dev-disk-by-label-sdcdisk3/snapraid.content'

I have no idea how my 2TBData2sdb became a label of 2TBData3. While I am hopeful that my files are still in tact somewhere, and that someone might be able to help me find them, I am a bit dismayed that I have lost everything. I don't know where to turn.
Assuming my stuff is still in my OMV somewhere, can someone tell me how to:
1. Find the Folders from a console command?
2. Attempt to list the files within those folders?
3. Copy files to an external USB drive?
4. How to fix this mess?
I am lost ...
