Definitely a good idea. We are running a clone each drive now.

I believe the assemble force was run on the disks that are mostly in sync with a failure. I'm going to try and clone and bring up the clones. The backup status is definitely questionable.

I'm coming in after the fact. But examining the mdadm -E output looks like the disk with Event - 968549 with Array State (AAAAA) dropped out of the array a month ago. The other disk failed / dropped out on the same day (Event 2062081 ) causing the array to fail. After a reboot all drives are present but out of sync. With the array unable to start. The general consensus after trying to assemble and failing, is to run - mdadm --create /dev/md0 --assume-clean --level=5 - with the drives we trust. But I'm wondering if that's safe with the out of sync Events.
