Hello,

I have a Lacie 2 terrabyte biggerdisk. The worst case scenario happened to me... bad sectors :(
Í can still see the drive but trying to copy my data often results in a crash or system lock.
The Lacie bigger disk is made out of 4x 500 gigabyte harddisks in a raid 0 so i'm not able to get the disks out and connect them to my IDE port.

I have found a utility that might fix things. It's called Harddisk Regenerator.
Unfortunately it's for DOS only and DOS doesn't have firewire support :(
I've been trying to get it to work but no succes yet.
Hopefullt someone can help me to get this drive working in dos

HDDReg might still be able to help. Even though it is raid, turn the lacie apart and make sure you don't turn it on before your finished. take the first disk and connect to a PC which you boot with the hddreg floppy. Let the tool run (on the disk that went bad you'll probably have to repeat this a couple of times until all error have gone, it'll take a long time....

Put the disk back into the lacie case into the original position, remove the next disk and repeat the above. Do that with all 4 disks. Once all four disks have been repaired, and are back in their original position in the Lacie, turn it back on. Now if this worked you should be able to copy your data off.

Don't keep on using the lacie once you have saved the data, as the HDDREG, although it is usually a great help, normally won't repair a disk for long, it is likely to happen again.
