2x WD 1tb Caviar Black in Raid 0 turned RAW

#1 Post by Dynamistic » 29 Jul 2014, 20:13

I downloaded an update for my raid controller and then it asked me to restart my computer, after I come back my drive has turned RAW, I have been desperately trying to find a way to convert it back to the way it was without losing any data or spending money, can someone please help me fast?

Do you have a functionally array?
Is your RAID degraded?
Did you recreate your array, exactly like before, without repartition and formatting it?

Nice to see that you were able to solve your problem
It was depend on, did you create a RAID0 using the BIOS of your RAID-controller or the controller-software under windows.
I'll set your topic as solved!
