If I create a concatenated RAID set and one of the disks fails, what will happen to the data on the other disks? Can it be recovered?

    I would think so, after all they are merely joined together, so the data (except for the overlap) should be complete and recoverable with software like DataRescue which just reads the "1's and O's" directly off the drive and rebuilds files from that.

    It's when you RAID O (stripe) and split the data path across drives is when if you lose one drive you lose it all.
