Access RAID0 Files in Parted Magic?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I know you can access normal HDD files on Parted Magic through 'My Documents', but can I access my RAID0 HDDs files?

I lost my RAID0 array when I switched to an Intel motherboard without backing up, but now I can see my 931GB RAID0 array in Parted Magic and would just like to get some photos and music off before I restart the array. Can I open it up? I tried to mount it but when I click mount nothing happens.

Help is much appreciated, thanks.

We need more information about the RAID setup.

Quick Answer: You need to switch the hard drives back to the motherboard that had the RAID set up on them (or plug them back into the controller that had the RAID set up).

Generally, the RAID is set up on the Controller and then RAID enabled volumes are set up on the hard drives. GParted is going to notice that there is a RAID setup on the drives, but it isn't able to recreate the RAID ... more specifically, it isn't going through the controller on the OLD board with the RAID information and isn't able to read anything more than the fact that there is a RAID setup on the drives.

If the old board is toast, you may be able to get by with trying to run gparted with the drives connected (if something was preventing it from booting all the way).

Unfortunately with RAID, you need to keep the hardware together and backup frequently.

Hope this helps

Hi,

I suppose your issue is resolved now.

Just want to give an answer for any other people who face this issue...a I was.


Find an ISO image of a Win8 (windows PE) or build your own. Then you can boot using this CD/USB while enabling RAID in bios.

This live Windows loads RAID driver which makes your RAID partition available! From where you could see your files.
