I have a machine running Windows XP SP3 with a RAID 0 (2x 500GB). A few days ago, a message appeared in Windows saying one of the drives had a problem, but it ran a test (with Windows RAID Manager, or something like that) and it said it was fine. I believed it so it worked okay for a few more days.
Yesterday, my computer wouldn't boot, saying there was a disk on the RAID that had failed. My basic knowledge of RAID 0 told me "come on man, you know there's nothing to do", but I tried with a live CD:
On Ubuntu the drive is failing, nothing to do. WinPE (XP): the same thing. Windows 7: the RAID is there! The partitions are there, I can see the files (what a lucky guy I am), but I can't copy the files. Whenever I try, it does nothing. I've tried with GetDataBack - it sees the RAID volume, but not the partitions, and when I try to recover, it keeps on saying "Error 2 in HD123: during ReadLba" in every sector.
Do you think the fact that I can actually see the partition on Windows Explorer means there's hope? Anything I should try?
