    Raid5 is corrupt

    Rainbow68

      Hello,

       

      on an Asrock P67 Extreme 6 Motherboard is a RAID5 with 4x1,5TB Harddisks. (W7 Home Pr. 64bit)

      Unfortunately the CLR CMOS button was pressed while running Windows.

      Then the system was restarted with wrong BIOS-Settings.

      Everything ended up with a corrupt Array. Only two of the four harddisks are within the array. The two others are there as normal drives.

      I think the disks themselfs are OK.

       

      Is it possible to recreate the Array?

          Hello,

           

          did ask something stupid or naughty?

          Or is this matter so difficult?

           

          Thanks in advance

            Can you let me know exactly the "wrong BIOS settings"?

            I assume the computer changed from RAID to AHCI or IDE mode, of this is the case, then you will need recreate the array and start from scratch.

            What is the CTRL + I status? Is it failed or degraded?

              Hello,

               

              thanks for your reply.

              When pressing CTRL+I during start up it shows two of the disks failed.

              Yes the computer was started with AHCI-mode instead of RAID-mode.

               

              In the meantime I have deleted the RAID in the Rapid-Storage-Tool.

              At the Moment I am trying to recreate the Array with RecoverMyFiles from GetData.

              We want at least find the Outlook.pst - file which was by mistake not included in the backup.

              Some photos also have been changed since the last backup.

               

              Are there some other things we can do?

               

              Thanks

                Failed drives on any RAID volume means no data and structure are available.

                You can try resetting disk to Non-RAID through CTRL-I and try to recover data using another computer.

                Please bear in mind when computer changed from RAID to AHCI, the RAID structure got disabled.

                  Hello,

                   

                  I managed to write a VHDX-Image of the RAID-system with the ReclaiMe Free RAID Recovery.

                  Then I saw that I need W8 to get access to this image. Now I have W8 and I see that my PC doesn't support Hyper-V which seems to be necesarry for this function.

                  Is there any other possibility to access a VHDX-Image?

                   

                  Thanks in advance

                    Being that a third party software, you may need to check with its respective developer for alternate options on this
