RAID 0 gone bad.

any ideas to get a raid 0 array working again? the drives are fine and all the data is on them, but raid doesn't want to recognize them. someone suggested rtools, but a demo version only lets you recover 64kb files. key? other options?

If the RAID set is broken, yet you can read the data, your best option is to copy off what you can/need.

The only way I know to get a broken RAID 0 set back working is to set it up as new - which means the existing data is going to be erased.

RAID 0 is all about speed and performance - there is NO data redundancy... Depending on how your RAID controller and RAID 0 set was created, you may only lose files split across the drives (JBOD mode). If your RAID 0 was in Striped mode, you will probably need pay for something like rtools.

that's what I figured, I'm trying to decide if rtools is worth it because I don't actually remember what's on them. If I knew, I'd be able to decide. Oh you, impasse!
