Hi All.

Here is my problem:

I have a FTP Server running Windows XP (forgot if it is Home or Pro). The OS was on a RAID 1 with 2 WD drives. I also have a RAID 5 with 4 WD drives that are running on an Arcera Hardware RAID card. The RAID 1 can be deleted/reformatted if necessary, but the RAID 5 can not be. These contain client files. I also do not have a backup (I know...STUIPD!!)

My question is: Will the info on the RAID 5 be safe if I do a reformat/reinstall of the OS on the RAID 1 drives and leave all other hardware the same?

If you need more info, please just let me know and I will do my best to answer.
