Rebuild RAID 0 array

I have lost my RAID array, which I use for Windows XP and programs. I had this problem about a year ago and used some software that recognized the 2 pieces and put them back together again - very easy, very quick. Now my memory has faded and I can't remember what I used to do that. Can anyone help? I think it must have been software from the HD maker, but haven't been able to get that to work.

    The only software that I'm aware that can do this is's RAID Reconstructor - it costs $99 or you can waste significant time and try doing it free using their other tools.

    I would also suggest if your data is important to you, that you STOP using RAID 0.  If one disk fails (as opposed to the RAID simply failing) then you lose everything and nothing short of a data recovery service will be able to retrieve your data.

    Thanks. I am through with RAID 0. However, all my data is on a non-RAID drive, backed up onto another internal non-RAID drive, then backed up again onto an external drive. My data is OK - I'm just trying to avoid reinstalling all my programs.

    I solved it - It's in the BIOS settings.

    Thanks leew for the advice on RAID Reconstructor. I had seen it but wanted someone with experience to confirm it. Didn't need it this time, but it's nice to know it's there.
