HowTo : Recover Intel RAID "Non-Member Disk" Error.. - Page 3

post #21 of 275
Woohoo!! It worked!!
I had a failed RAID 0 setup, because I switched my drives to different SATA ports, then afterwards I had 1 failed RAID and 1 non-raid disk.
I took a picture of the settings for my RAID, found in the Intel Matrix screen, than deleted the RAID and recreated it.
In Windows, I used TestDisk like you said (a guide can be found here: http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk_Step_By_Step)
And it totally worked!!! I have everything back, without having to use extra disks!

Thanks a lot!
10 minutes of worked and what a result!

I am having a similar error that is listed on this thread. However, I am dealing with a RAID-5 non-bootable array. The unknown drive is showing up as an internal drive within the Intel rapid storage manager. The unknown array drive has the same serial number of the internal drive, except the unknown array drive as a :0 after the serial number. Would these same instuctions still work for my RAID-5 array, or is there another way I can restore this array? I have an extra 2TB drive (same as the four drives in the array). Could I set one up as a spare and would that allow the array to rebuild automatically?

Thanks,
Dan

This worked like a boss. Even on a 3TB (GPT MS file table) formatted with ext2 on Windows Server 2008 R2. Fantastic.

For those with GPT file tables (if you have a filesystem bigger than 2TB, you will), I did a Google search "TestDisk gpt" and found some git commits (dated ~2010) which corrected a couple of bugs for GPT. The TestDisk version 6.11.3 (6 May 2009) would have this bug, so I used the Beta WIP version, 6.12. I encountered no problems using the Beta.

Yay! I got my RAID 0 partitions back. 70% of the way through the RAID 1.

I want to add additional information. Using ZAR (Zero Assumption Recovery) you can recover any RAID without the controller or settings it was set up with. It does this by, as it was named, assuming nothing. I'm on my second round using it after I gave up on fixing this failed RAID5 (2/3 disks read as offline without reason.) The process is roughly the same as using Testdisk. The Testdisk methode, however, is much faster. ZAR takes a lifetime to process.

Running a RAID0 array without a back-up is akin to playing Russian Roulette with no empty chambers. wink.gif

I had a four HDD RAID0 for three years before decommissioning it for my Revodrive. Never once a problem. Gotta love single platter WD drives. (4x160GB)

Oh no doubt. I was just attesting to the outstanding quality of those little drives. Today they are operating in four separate machines... We'll see which one dies first.

yeah well im another one who 'confidently' deleted the RAID array only to lose everything. this guide is not without its perils people. on two different PCs

fortunately we havent lost anything as we have daily backups.
post #29 of 275
Wow, what a PITA this issue is, I almost died thinking I lost all my data. I have kind of a weird setup and I had a couple extra steps that enabled me to recover all the data. I also didn't have to deal with recovery of a boot up drive as this is just a massive storage array for media. My setup is an MSI Z68MA-ED55 motherboard using Intel's newest Z68 chipset. I have an 80GB Intel SSD boot drive, a 60GB Crucial SSD cache drive (to accelerate the RAID array), and (3) 3TB disks configured in a RAID5 array. The RAID disks were configured as one, huge GPT/NTFS partion of 5.5TB's usable space in Windows 7 64bit. Here's what I did to recover all my data:

1. Go into Intel RAID BIOS using CTRL-I and delete all non-member disks. I also deleted the 60GB SSD cache drive that I was using for the Z68's special caching and removed it from the array. Basically, I removed all the disks, and deleted the array, and removed the SSD from caching... a blank canvas.

2. Recreate the RAID5 array using the exact same name and settings as the one that was lost.

3. I booted Windows 7 up and used the Intel disk manager to add my 60GB SSD to accelerate the array. Again, used the exact same settings that I did before.

4. This is what tripped me up. I couldn't get the TestDisk program to properly find my partitions, it kept thinking it was a MAC EFS partition. It knew something was there, but I couldn't figure out how to make it work right, and the user interface was bugging me. I had bought Paragon Partition Manager 11 Personal Edition back at some point and had it installed already, so I decided to give it a try. I ran the partition recovery tool and it found the lost partition right off the bat, but wanted to do a lengthy scan of all sectors on the disk, which would have taken hours probably, so I just stopped the scan, right after it found my partition (within a min). Paragon's partition recovery found the 5.5TB partition and saw that 2.5TB's were in use. Hooray I thought! But I wasn't quite there... when I tried to recover it, it claimed it had succeeded, but when I went into the Windows Disk Manager, it showed multiple partitions, which wasn't correct... for some reason it had broken up the disk into multiple partitions which were limited to 2TB. I held my breath, deleted all the partitions in Disk Manager so there was only 5.5TB's of free space. I then converted the disk to a GPT disk. I went back into Partition Manager and re-ran the partition recovery and once again recovered the partition. Voila!!! Windows Disk Manager now saw the whole 5.5TB partition. The last thing I had to do was assign it a drive letter and do a quick chkdsk, which didn't really find any problems. In any case, all my data is back, and my system is now running fine.

Thank you to the original authors of this thread, you got me started on the right track and if it weren't for you I'd be crying right now.

I really wish my search found this a couple months ago.. or that someone would have pointed it out to me in one of my threads... *sigh* oh well. Thank you. Will have to keep this for later.
