Hi all,

I have a Dell Dimension 9150 which I have come to realise has RAID 0 (striped) across 2x 150gb drives.

Other than faster performance I can't see why they have done this on a desktop machine???

A drive has failed (great!) I have tried to run a chkdsk on it, but it just won't run.

I could do with getting the users data off, but how can I run a recovery program on 2 drives? As it's RAID 0, the data will be striped across the 2 drives.

Any pointers would be amazing.

Thanks

I think you'd have to go the recovery software route, http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=r...mp;aq=f&oq=

Which is still a gamble and will cost money (unless you find a free recovery software which also purports to handle a RAID-0 situation.

Ok Thanks- Data is not that important so I won't bother, might try an R-Studio scan over it - and see what pops up.
