[SATLUG] RAID5 Recovery - ddrescue 3rd round - CMP'd

I'll spend some time tomorrow (my Saturday) going through the various
analysis commands.  I would like to make sure I've properly dotted my
T's and crossed my I's before I do anything that might change the data.

I'll post statuses ("stati"?) once I've examined.

I can't say how much I appreciate the help.  Wish I could get to the
computer show, but I'll have to work - MAYBE I can stop by there for a
FEW short minutes, since I work in the area.  We'll have to see.

In the few times that I have done a --force, it always assembled the array with the disk with the lowest event count left out.

But if you really want to force it without sdb then you would do:

mdadm --assemble --force /dev/md0 /dev/sde1 /dev/sda1 /dev/sdc1

instead of:

mdadm --assemble --force /dev/md0 /dev/sde1 /dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1
