Remap raw disk: data loss?

Please see http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/VMWare/Q_28350143.html
If I remap a disk into another ESXi, will I loose data or is there another (secure) way to recover data from the (raw) disk?
I will use 1 raw disk for backup so want to be sure that I can safely recover data from it if the server (or raid) would die.

No, this is the benefit of using RAW, the data will remain intact.
