Hi everyone -

I have a DL320 G3 server with two SATA Hard Disks configured as a mirror array; I recently reset the NVRAM in the BIOS and I think this has disabled the RAID option in the BIOS as well -

The result is that the system now boots in simple mode, with both drives being visible in Windows. When trying to re-enable the RAID option in the BIOS I get a warning saying doing this will 'result in possible data loss on both drives'.

Does anyone know if RAID can be re-enabled without any data being lost?

Thanks

If possible, I would backup the data using a byte by byte image beforehand using any good imaging software

GHOST, ACRONIS, and there are also some free options.

 
I hope this helps !
