Dell XPS 410 - Raid 0 with 1 bag sector

Hi There !

Getting Raid 0 failure on boot up (so system does not boot into Windows). Would like to retrieve my personal files .....

Checked both drives individually in another system (non Raid config) using 'HDD' diag. One of the 2 drives is showing 1 bad sector.

How might I attempt to read files on this 'broken Raid 0 array ?

THANKS

You're gonna have a hard time recovering this from another machine. Your best best is to try and do a repair install of the OS on that machine. If that doesn't work, then try running a boot CD like Bart PE or ERD commander and hope it still sees your data.

As RAID 0 has no redundancy, your array is gone and your best option is to restore it from your backups.

You might have a very small chance if you use the RAID reconstructor, but it is very slim:

1st used ntfs4DOS. Was able to see files but had difficulty with 'XCOPY'. Took a 3rd drive, installed XP. Now the broken RAID drives are 'slaves'. Ran CHDSK and 'voila' all files avaialble.

Got lucky !
