    Drives 'unjoined' in Matrix Storage

    howardcrow

      I have had a strange failure. I upgraded the Bios on my machine. The Raid 5 setup I had on the data drives then failed. In looking at the failure the following things are going on:

       

      • it is a 5 disk raid-5 setup
      • all 5 drives show as healthy (no smart failures, etc..)
      • Only 3 of the drives still appear in the array
      • the other 2 disks show as 'non-raid drives' in matrix storage manager. In windows - these unjoined drives appear as unformatted drives.

       

      How can I 're-join' these drives withour losing all my data?

       

      Thanks!
