"Great piece of FREEware!"
Version: Raid To Raid 1
I was able to rebuild my raid 0 array on my new motherboard and copy all of my data to new drives! Note: if you have raid 5, 0+1 (10) you are protected from 1 HDD failure, but not motherboard failure, use this tool to recover!
Here's the story! My computer is 4 years old and although I usually maintained backups, I had been too busy to remember even though I knew I needed to. Anyways, my Abit Ax8, started to die, it would not cold boot, initially, it would take 10 mins of powering on and off to boot, and then 2 hours and then finally, when I decided to back up it would not boot (I had to switch off due to power cut (I have APC, UPS)). I panicked knowing I had new data on the raid array.
During the latter days of my AX8 issues (btw Abit make great boards!), I started purchasing new parts, envisioning the day it would die.
So I rebuilt my PC. I mounted the 2 Raptor 360GDs on my Asus P5Q Deluxe, but realized that I would have to create a new array and doing so would destroy my data. So I removed the raptors and put in my new disks and installed Vista64 in raid 0.
Once I finished my new system, I added the raptors on the Intel Matrix ICH10R SATA, booted Vista, ran Raid 2 Raid and recovered all my files from 3 VIA raid partitions.
I'd say that was a great relief.
All in all, RAID 2 RAID worked very well for me!
