View Full Version : Mistakenly RAID-0'ed my DATA drive! LOL
Yeah, I should've unplugged my data drive to make sure of which drives I was dealing with :headexplode:
I selected two of my 300 GB Raptor drives for RAID-0. It didn't initialize the drives or anything that I could tell. Is there a program that could restore the data drive back pretty easily?

Is there an option to delete the array without destroying the data?
As far as I know when you create an array it doesn't write any data to the disks, maybe except the MBR, some special sector, or somewhere else.
I imagine that if you delete the array in the on-chip bios setup, it wouldnt mess with the data, but I could be wrong.
I'm using this program and it "seems" to be working but when I look at the files as they're being restored I see wing-ding looking stuff in them :( I think I'm gonna be sick lol
I'm hoping maybe I have to wait until the whole restore is complete and maybe thing wing-dings will go away.

Try Ontrack EasyRecovery. It has saved me a few times with unreadable hard disks.
Thanks for the suggestions guys. I got SUPER lucky and was able to throw the drive in a non-RAID system and it saw all the data like nothing had ever happened :) PHEW!
