Dane-Elec Intel Gen 1 DEAD

I bought 2 Dane-Elec Rebranded Gen 1 Intel SSD's from Micro Center for my Mac Pro.

Have been running them in Raid 0 as my startup drive for about 1 month.

Yesterday one of them quit responding.

Disk Utility doesn't see it and it wont mount.

Disk Warrior sees only "Intel SSD Bootloader". I booted into Winblows 7 and used the Intel Toolbox and it lists the same with 0GB capacity.

What are my Options? Since the 2 were in a Raid 0 is my data gone? or can it be retrieved by a disk repair service?

This sucks- Sometimes my Mac won't even boot with the drives inserted as they spike a processor. Right now as i'm typing one processor is at 100% as I guess it's trying to read the drive.

Thanks for any Reply's for help!

Hello, I would like to let you know that if a RAID 0 fail there is no way to recover the information that you had there, if the Solid State Drive is not working anymore please contact the Intel Solid State Drive support at the phone number: 916 377 7000 option 6 for replacement assistance.

If the SSD's are fine and it just the partition or strip size thats corrupted you can use RAID2RAID to move your data off the array.

If it can not see your array in RAID2RAID delete the RAID Volume in the Intel RAID boot ROM then recreate the RAID Volume with the same strip size & size of the array you had before as deleting the RAID Volume only deletes the boot info for the RAID and partition not your data all RAID2RAID needs is the boot info for the RAID.

But if a SSD has died completely then your data is lost.
