I have no physical or firmware issues with my Raid 10. I just was messing with the Raid config tool to change my other 2 drives that were raid 1 to raid 0, in doing that I deleted the virtual group that had the raid 10. I recreated the virtual groups/drives and then the raid 10 went through initializing I think but after I reimaged my OS from the raid 1 back to the new created raid 0 and go into the OS the E drive (raid 10) is not accessible. I am hoping it is just a setting maybe or something simple. If not i need to find a software to recovery the raid 10 so I can wipe it clean and start over. I do have raid reconstructor. Don't know if it will load on my sbs2008 server. My drives are SAS so I can't plug them in to another computer. they have to be on the same controller.
Drive setup:
Raid 0 that was Raid 1: 2x76GB drives
Raid 10: 4x146GB

I believe deleting the virtual raid10 drive and re-initializing it would have wiped out your data on that array. What exactly do you mean by it's no accessible? Does your OS not see it? has it finished initializing?

it finished but the Drive had RAW next to it. so something is not right. I am just look for a Raid1 or Raid 10 recovery. But most likely my Raid Reconstructor will work with Raid 1 so I will give that a shot.

What hardware are you using? Some IBM servers do have the ability to copy the config back from the disks, although by the sounds of it you might have lost the config already.
