Help! Raid 0 Failed

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I realise many people have had problems with a Raid 0 hard drive setup, but based on my limited knowledge of computers I thought it best to include some photos and see if anyone could help me with my particular situation.

The first photo is about a week ago when it started having trouble booting up, but after running 'Startup repair' and then some CHKDSK verification it seemed to have sorted something out as it was now booting up and the computer was running fine once loaded. Athough admittedly the status 'Error Occured (0,1)' was still coming up next to the Port 0 physical device, but I haven't had any free time until now to try and sort it out.

Original error

5 days later the computer stopped booting up entirely and the error messages in the second photo I have attached appeared. It now says, status 'Non-RAID Disk' next to Port 0 physical device and the status of both RAID Volumes has changed to 'Failed'. If it moves on past this screen it just says 'Missing operating system' and nothing happens until I turn the computer off again.

Current error

Hope you can help me! Fortunately I have some of the more important data backed up, but there is a lot of stuff I would like to recover from the hard drives and so hopefully I will be able to get it working again.

I'm running Windows 7, not sure if that's relevant or not....

Thanks a lot
Mike

There are raid recovery solutions available. depending on how bad the hard drive is you might be able to use a software solution or send the drives in to a recovery specialist

I had a dead computer on RAID 0, and my backup was 4 months stale. I was able to get about 95% of my stuff back with a two disk enclosure hooked to my laptop and ReclaimMe. I used the free version to verify it could make the recovery, than paid up when I found it could. It was like the fifth program I tried.

Thanks for the replies.

So I can use a two disk enclosure, put the hard drives into it, connect it to another PC, then use some kind of recovery software (like ReclaimMe), which should hopefully allow me to copy all of the data onto the PC?

Do you know if it actually makes any changes to the data on the hard drives during the recovery process or does it just scan it and copy recovered data to the PC?

The reason I'm asking is because I found the thread below which appears to be describing a fix for a problem with a RAID 0 error that seems very similar to the one I'm having and I think it may have just lost it's RAID configuration?? I just thought if the recovery software makes changes on the hard drive perhaps it wouldn't work?

There are a lot of people who have found the potential solution completely successful, with the odd person who hasn't had the same luck...

Yeah I don't think most software makes changes to the disks, but you could check the documentation to make sure. Also, make sure the enclosure you get supports RAID, and make sure that you don't auto-wipe the disks when you boot up the enclosure (mine had a couple of settings).

As far as fixing the error, I would extract what you can first before doing any tweaks that require writes.

As far as efficacy goes, nothing is guaranteed to work, especially with RAID 0, but its definitely worth trying a bunch of techniques (including the one in your link) before throwing in the towel.

Antoher one you can try is Puran File recovery, only would that would work on my 6 tb raid. But remeber in the future keep a backup somewhere as raid 0 increased performance etc but also increased failure to.
