    RAID Motherboard

    I have a friend with a Gigabyte GA-8PENXP motherboard. He set up his HDD's in RAID using the motherboard chipset. He used RAID 0 (for speed) now the motherboard has failed. Can he use any other RAID adapter to recover the data from the disks?
    If not, how can the data be recovered?

    Re: RAID Motherboard

    Unfortunately, the BEST method is to find another system/RAID Card from the same manufacture to recover the data. This is not to say that you can not use another, just the best.

    A Quick Google search for raid 0 recovery or raid 0 recovery software yielded some results.

    I have been fortunate in that the systems I have had to work on, we had backup hardware either the same or from the same manufacture that worked.

    We discussed this issue in this thread.

    If you don't have a recent backup then your best bet is to find a PC with the same motherboard.
