What RST configuration you had? I mean, was it RAID-0, RAID-1 or 5?
is there a way i can find out for sure?
my wife thinks it is RAID-1??
we have never been told

PCI bus 0, device 31 function 2
is that helpfull??
can i say i am rapidly losing confidence in this system, i would like to have it work for me like it was sold to me as best alternative to any other backup system including external drive
How many HHDs do you have?
What is your Motherboard model? please check the BIOS configuration and make sure it is in RAID mode.
This step will let you know which RAID you have. Desktop Boards — Ctrl-I Option to Open RAID Software Does Not Appear
it has 2 the 'C' drive, and this rapid store drive
all fixed took it to the repair shop the only sensible thing to do
Intel® Rapid Storage Technology does not back up any information, the IRST works to create RAIDs and to manage your disks from that application but it will not back up any information.
Please install the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology, access the software and see what the status of the hard drives is. I will appreciate if you could POST a picture of it.
Please be aware that if you had a RAID 0 in your system and now they show as non RAID disks your information will be lost, if you had a RAID 1 your information is still there and you could recover that information but if you don’t see the information there then you will need to find a third party Data Recovery Software to recover the data.
my previous answer should indicate that my machine recognises 'raid' is still there
i was sold 'raid' i have no idea about it being number rated, if i ahve raid-0 then that is what i was sold, i was sold 'intel rapid store' actually as a back up system, no good berating me about it, i only paid to ahve the system installed, so if i should have other than 'raid-0' if that is what i actually ahve should i ask you to help me upgrade to 'raid-1 or 5' whatever, free of charge, because your answer says it will never help me in time of trouble, which is what i need like many other lay people
so if 'raid' won't do what i was told maybe 'intel' could arrange a refund for me in good faith
so using the premise: "that 2 wrongs - won't make a right" no finger pointing, all has been said, then this extra HDD with 'intel rapid store' run by 'sata - raid #/' is of no value as a life preserver for me, so now i need to work out how best tu utilise this 2nd HDD so it will be of some use to me
can you help please?
In this case, we still don’t know what RAID you have, but if you and we are talking about Intel® Rapid Storage Technology, I’m not sure what Intel rapid store is.
As I mentioned before, the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology is not suppose to back up any information, you will need to be responsible to back up your own information when you have a system installed and Intel® Rapid Storage Technology it is free software that you can use to create a RAID configuration in your system.
If you are able to access Windows probably you don’t have a RAID 0, I would like to see a picture of the status of you disks in the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology if it is possible.
as far as we can determine we have 'raid-0', the software is called 'intel rapid store' that tells me it is an intel product
the system was set up as a mirror system that is what i ahve been told
so for me the intel system is not for me,
hopong you follow what i am saying
i needed help i supplied best as answers, but no help came
I’m sorry that we don’t have a solution for you; unfortunately we don’t have software to recover data. You will need to use a Data Recovery Software from a third party company to get that information back.
Could you please post some pictures of the software and the RAID status that you have.
