Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I want to change to do a fresh install without keeping my data on my primary hard drive, but I also have 4 2TB Drives in a software RAID 5 array that I created with mdadm and I don't want to lose that, how can I do it ? Will I be able to rebuild the RAID without losing everything? Also this is my first time with Ubuntu/Linux and I'm not quite comfortable with it so excuse me if I ask silly questions.
