SCSI Detection in XP

I have installed a SCSI Card in an XP computer and need to get the information off of the dirves. The computer has detected and list the drives in the hardware list. But how would I get to the information on the drives?

Are you saying the the SCSI Card is detected, but the drives are not?

When you open "My Computer" do you see the extra drives listed?

Were these drives JBOD or RAID, dynamic, etc?

If they're detected in Windows, but not showing up in Explorer, then Windows is likely not recognizing the file system on the disk, or has to import them.

The correct way to proceed depends on how they were setup previously.

yes the card is detected and yes the drives are installed. they are listed in the hardware list but do not show up under "MY COMPUTER". They were RAID and I want to get the information off of them to put on a new server set up.

Were they on a hardware RAID or a software RAID? What RAID level?
Are these from a failed server?

you may need to use GetDataBack (http://runtime.org)to recover the data off of these.

They have Raid Reconstructor which can figure out the RAID then create an image of the data on it, and then use GetDataBack for NTFS to extract the data from the image.

Since you've got a SCSI controller and they used to be RAID you need either an identical RAID controller or www.runtime.org/raid.htm

It is a hardware RAID 0 and yes it is from a failed server. Would I run the recover software from the XP computer?

I would recommend using raid reconstructor, (You can do this on XP)
but you will have to have another drive with enough space to hold the image created!

Once the RAID reconstructor and created an image of the RAID, you can use GetDataBack for NTFS to scan the image, and copy the data out. Once again, you will need enough space to copy this data out!
