  • Recover Data From Raid 1

    I have two drives which were in a RAID 1 array. There is no external backup. The motherboard has failed and there is no motherboard available that is the exact same part.

    I've put one of the drives into a External USB drive bay, and it shows unformatted. Segate file recovery can recover the data, but is there any way to recover the data as some type of image (Acronis, Clonezilla) onto another drive since I can't put it back into a raid?

      Good question, it shows empty... User said it was in raid 1...

      Not sure why the other shows empty... if it wasn't a raid and was just NTFS, even motherboard dying, I should be able to view in Windows... It's a vista machine.

      Has only 1 file: msdia80.dll

        What RAID controller was used?
        Assuming not native Windows, file recovery software seems the way to go -- then copy it onto another drive as a JBOD NTFS drive

          I was able to find some raid recovery software... Customer had apparently not done backups, and put it in a raid 0 for speed!

          Found a software package which worked great. Thanks for everyone's suggestions/input.

            Hope this has scared the customer enough that they now do backups.
            1 1 was a racehorse.
            2 2 was 1 2.
            1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
            2 2 1 1 2

              I'd like to think so... but with this one... I have a feeling I'll see him again real soon... Oh, and did I mention he wants it done for nothing ($$$)... Lol...

              Anyway, thanks for the wishes!

                awesome.
                I got a quote opportunity on serviceseeking the other day, to recover data from a hard drive.
                I wasn't going to touch it with a barge pole..
                if i ever need to do that, i'll be sending it to somewhere like dataretriever.com.au

                  Yeah, this originally was a "My computer won't turn on" call... usualy a PSU, but in this case bad MB... He was all bent out of shape when I told him it would cost him an extra $45.00 (US) for the data recovery!!!!

                  My partner forgot to have him sign our TOS agreement so I'm being very flexible, but otherwise I would have told him to come get his computer and go to the Geek [Er, "local big box store"] and see what type of treatment he'd get!

                    You gotta be crapping me. Why are you expected to provide a service for FREE when numbnuts hasn't done a backup. A friend of mine spent several hours and recovered AUD$800,000+ worth of data from a screwed drive and the miserable lady bits didn't even say thank you. If it happens again their business is going down the tubes. Oh yes, he had even implimented a backup proceedure but the ID 10 Ts couldn't be stuffed swapping the backup HDD each day.

                      I have to have home users right now since I only do this PT until I retire in 2.34 years (not that I am counting). Home users want you to spend hours to save $10.00 on a PC... When I can retire, I'm going to transition to business only.
