HELP - Degraded RAID 1 on a GA-M68MT-S2P motherboard

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I had a server with some skittish hard drives. It was an AMD Athlon x4 640 with a Gigabyte GA-M68MT-S2P with two WD Blue 300 gb HDDs in RAID 1. I went to replace the HDD's, but accidentally disconnected one of the WD Blues. The computer reported a degraded RAID array. After that neither drive would boot. I replicated one drive, and that would not boot.

Now one drive is toast, and the other drive looks like it was last updated in 2014. To make everything better, the last usable backup was from 10/14/2015 (did I mention I just took over IT responsibilities a few months ago).

What are my best options for recovering data? Do I send the other drive out for data recovery? The data matters, but not so much to make a $5k recovery job make sense.

Have you attempted any self-use recovery software?

Testdisk generally works well when the drives themselves are fine and the controller just goofs / misinterprets human error.
