Raid 0 reclaim data
Posted on 2006-11-07
Here's the situation: I have a Dell 670 that I am using for video editing and something caused a crash that resulted in the inability to re-boot and knocked the 3-drive
0 raid array offline (there is no separate boot drive). A new controller card is in place (the suspected failure cause) and the drives have been verified and check out OK, but I am getting mixed messages from Dell and elsewhere whether I will loose my data if we reconnect with the array. The new card is the same as the old but getting it to see the array again is the big question...rebuild the array...or how do I reconnect without losing anything. Or, should I be reclaiming the data with a software program or something before going any farther (what works)? The data is extremely important. I really appreciate your thoughts.
