Hi, we just had a crash on our server (DELL Poweredge) and since then the controller seems to be working fine (PERC) but in Windows 2003 Server the drive isn't showing up in My Computer and in Disk Management it's saying Disk 1, Unknown, 558.75GB, Not Initialized. I don't want to Initialize the drive in the fear that it will format the data on the disk, can anyone tell me if\how I can get windows to recognise the drive without loss of data.
This obviously had to happen a couple of days after our backup also broke, and on the day we received a new backup drive. Nightmare!!
Any help would be greatly appreiciated. I'm currently running the checking consistancy option on the virtual dirve (resync, as per dell's instructions) which is taking a long time.
I've posted this under the hardware topic too, hopefuly someone will be able to help.
