I had a 4-HDD stripe array disk. All HDDs were internal. The dynamic disk was created using Windows 7. My motherboard fried, and I bought a replacement. But what do you know, it's only got 2 sata ports!
But I do have 2 USB enclosures. So I plugged the other two HDDs through them, but Win7 won't let me reactivate the volume. It says the HDDs are missing and the ones plugged in through USB are invalid.
I know Win 7 enforces a policy of no-USB for dynamic disks, but I really need to get the data off. Before you ask, I don't have a sata card. :/ I would have used one already.
My question is whether there's a way to trick Win7 into thinking my two USB drives are internal (via a hacked driver or something like that) or there's a program (freeware) that can let me access the dynamic disk in a read-only manner not through windows 7?
