Win7-64 Intel RAID5 Recovery

#1 Post by rchinnis » 01 May 2013, 05:56

In short, I updated my ASUS BIOS, and 2 of my 4 disks were removed from my Intel RAID5 array. The array was not a boot drive. I was using it simply as a data drive. I deleted the array and recreated it identically to the previous array, and am hoping to use TestDisk to make this disk available to Windows 7 64-bit again.

When I run TestDisk, it successfully discovers a partition on the array, and I am able to browse and see all of my files. However, when I write the data to the drive, Windows still can't see the files. When I go back into TestDisk, the partition information that I requested it to write didn't appear to write. Hopefully, you will be able to give me some pointers from the log file.

Thanks for the help.

A bit of additional info. Here's what Windows 7 is seeing in Disk Management

Disk 1: Basic: 5589.04 GB: Online
129MB Unallocated
(E:) 2048.00 GB RAW Healthy (Primary Partition)
3540.92 GB Unallocated

129 unallocated was probably a MS Reserved partition?

You MS Data-partition should be your important partition containing your data.
It's still displayed in your GUID-partition table.

Would it be possible to make a boot sector diagnose to check are your data are listed or an error message?

Start TestDisk, confirm at create a log with enter and select your affected disk/RAID.
Confirm at partition table type with enter also
Don't confirm at Analyse but Advanced.
If your partition is listed as "Unknown" you can use the menu List to add your previous file system (partition type probably NTFS?) to your partition.
Afterwards, the menu Boot becomes available.
Confirm at Boot.
If you're able to list your files, you can either copy/backup your files using testdisk to another disk or write your boot sector at write.
Otherwise;
Highlight Rebuild BS and hit Enter.
Rebuild BS will be in progress.
Normally, it takes some minutes.
If you see the menu List, please highlight it and press enter.
If you see your data, you can copy your data or write your boot sector.

Fiona,

Thanks for the reply. I think I'm getting closer! One problem was that I was selecting Intel instead of GPT for the partition type. I have since selected GPT and verified that the boot sectors are ok and that I can list the files in TestDisk. I have written the partition table, but there still appears to be some cleanup remaining.

Windows is now showing three partitions for this Disk:
(E:) 100 MB RAW Healthy (Primary Partition)
26 MB Unallocated
Data Drive (F:) 5588.92 GB NTFS Healthy (Primary Partition)

I can read all of my data within Windows on the F: drive! This is progress!

Before the mess occurred, however, there was just one drive (the current F: was my E:). I'm attaching the latest log file after doing a Deeper Search to ask for more advice about cleaning up these two smaller bits of disk space.

Thanks for the help!

Re: Win7-64 Intel RAID5 Recovery

Ok, so, after doing some research online, I noticed that these GPT disks are supposed to have a 32- or 128-MB Microsoft Reserved partition at the beginning of the disk depending on size. For me, it's 128-MB.

So, I deleted the MS Data partition at the beginning of the disk (spanned 100 MB from 6400 - 211199), and Added an MS Reserved / NTFS partition beginning at sector(?) 1 and ending just before my true MS Data partition began. Something like this:

MS Reserved 1 - 264191
MS Data 264192 - 11720806400

Then I wrote that to the disk and rebooted.

Voila! It worked! The worst-case scenario had happened: two out of four disks in a RAID5 array had been booted from the array, and I've been able to recover everything. Zero loss.

These are links that helped me immensely:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/libr ... s.10).aspx

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/302873

Also, thanks to the crew here supporting TestDisk. In addition to the software itself allowing me to write these partition tables, I read tons of material here that educated me about the latest partition technology being used and was able to "ask" better questions of the internet to find what I needed. Thanks again!
