A friends PC's motherboard has packed it in. He had 2 hard drives in Raid 0 configuration in the PC. Is there a way of getting the data off the drives with out having to set them up in Raid 0 again? Can I connect them both to a PC via USB and reconstruct the striped data from both drives?
:pray:

Re: Raid 0 disks recovery

I believe plugging the drives into a new motherboard would ONLY work if the new motherboard has identical RAID controllers compared with the motherboard the drives were installed in to begin with.

Generally I believe data is not recoverable from a RAID 0 array unless you can do this, or unless you use a data recovery service or software. This is the major disadvantage of RAID 0.

Re: Raid 0 disks recovery

R-Studio can do this. Note that this is commercial software but has a limited function trial version. I don't know how the limit will effect this type of recovery. I have not used this product myself.

The difficulty of recovery and only modest performance improvement are reasons why RAID 0 is not generally recommended for desktop use.
