Read a mirrored disk in another pc

I need to get the data off a mirrored drive(raid 1).  I believe they used windows to mirror the disk.  I pulled out the hard drive and put it in a hard drive dock and plugged it up usb to another pc.  in disk management it shows as invalid.  there is an option to reactivate disk.  I dont know if I should hit that or not.

I think i need to convert a dynamic disk to a basic disk without losing data.  i guess i need third party software to do that?

First of all you need to reactivate it. Then convert.
But if the original PC is still available then connect the drive back to it and boot that machine from Paragon Rescue Kit Free CD. There you have File Transfer Wizard which will let you copy out the data from that drive to a USB drive.
