I had Win XP pro SP2 running on P4 with 1GB RAM and 3 HDD converted to Dynamic Disks and Striped. The whole arrangement was working very well untill last night my one of the HArd Disks crashed due to unknown reasons.
The Hard DIsk is a Western Digital Vaviar 3 40 GB and was the Primary disk with Boot PArtition. Whenever I start my machine the Hard Disk makes a short "Screaching" sound and then goes silent and again after few minutes screaches. The BIOS is unable to detect the HD ans now I cannot boot and I have lost everything whatever I had on my HDDs including the 2 gud ones.
I just need to know if there is any possibility of getting the HDD back to work so that I can just copy disk to another HD or shall I just forget about the loss and start installing everything from scratch...!!
