Hello
I have recently upgraded from vista 32bit to Windows 8 Pro 64 bit. 
All my important data was stored on Icybox External Drive enclosure in RAID mode (fully working before the upgrade).

 

Since the upgrade it is not showing up under "My computer", and then I go to disk management it is showing as an invalid Dynamic drive. I spent about 18 hours in various forums searching for solution, tried everything suggested, nothing worked.


I need the data that is on the ICYBOX and cannot convert it to basic disk until I get the data off.


The commercial software recommended did not work either.


Loosing my will to live!

Anyone has any suggestions please?

Thank you
