2 x 4TB SATA drives in RAID 0
Full drive encryption via Veracrypt (with hidden partition)
Password is known
hash ( SHA-512)
Two bits of BAD luck happened
1. motherboard DIED randomly
2. When reinstalling win7 to an NVMe drive, FRACKING windows setup deiced to put an mbr partition on one of my RAID 0 drives (obviously broke the raid array)
I tried to rebuild the raid with my NEW motherboard, but veracypt couldn't decrypt. Also tried "resotore volume header from drive" also didnt work.
I Figured i need to use the SAME type of motherboard RAID 0 was created on, So purchased a second hand PC with same brand motherboard & chipset to rebuild the RAID 0 with.
Unfortunately Still CANT decrypt drive or resotre header.
So i guess both the header & backup header got deleted
i know when you create a RAID drive it says "all data will be lost", but as we all know the data is still there, so i figure the header can be recovered? perhaps most likely from the location where the backup header is suppose to be (i think veracrypt put it at the end of the drive).
PLUS i came across your acticle that suggests;
Trouble is it doesnt really specify HOW to do this, and im a complete n00b when it comes to data recovery.the hidden volume file system may be partially overwritten. TestDisk Advanced menu can be used to rebuild the missing FAT or NTFS boot sector.

How can i use Testdisk to repair the overridden header so i can decrypt the drive?
Right now i have testdisk "analyzing", so far scanned 12% (going to take a while...)
PS: I have tried rebuilding the RAID 0 array changing the drive order (in case i connected them in the opposite order to original array), but also didnt help
