Recreate RAID volume

MC5

Hi,

I was using my MSI motherboard for RAID 1. But I did something stupid, I chose the option to "Reset Disks to Non-RAID". Now both disks show up as RAW in Windows. Is there any way to recover the files on these drives? These mirrored drives are used for data, OS is on another drive. I've tried using some data recovery software to scan the drives, but it only found .swf files (these are not the actual files on the drives)...

Thank you!

Hello superman1122,

Thank you for contacting Intel Communities.

Please check the following links and let me know how it goes:

A volume may show up as "raw" in disk management after you extend the partition, but https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2261358/a-volume-may-show-up-as-raw-in-disk-management-afte... chkdskhttps://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2261358/a-volume-may-show-up-as-raw-in-disk-management-afte... shows the file system as NTFS

I would recommend testing in one of the drives as you had RAID 1.
