This is not a complete step-by-step data recovery guide. Here I just listed all software needed during my successful recovery.

1. To fix GPT record, use TestDisk.
2. To read and reconstruct RAID, use UFS Explorer Professional Recovery.

Notes:
1. Linkstation filesystem is XFS
2. Linkstation not using legacy MBR, instead it’s using GPT for partition table record
