Can't Recover Data from RAID1 Disks
Posted on 2007-09-29
I was using two western digital raptor drives in a Raid1 configuration on my old computer as the primary drive where the operating system was installed. I just removed those drives and they are part of my new system as backup drives. I need to get some information off of them, though, that I forgot to remove before dismantling the old computer. My problem is that Windows now sees these two drives, but only as unpartitioned, unnamed drives, and I am concerned that doing anything to name these drives or make them part of a new system might destroy the data I have on them.
Incidentally, I also plugged these drives into an external enclosure for SATA drives, and received an error on one of the drives when I tried to access it saying that it was corrupted. The other drive did not show up at all on the list of available drives.
How do I get the data off of these former RAID1 drives?
