OK, I have two 60GB hard drives that were striped into a RAID 0 by Windows 2000 - they were software RAID, not hardware.
Now then, I tried to install WinXP, but it gave me an error saying that "one or more disks were identical and could not be accessed. Windows has repaired the problem."
It's "repair" of the problem involved deleting the partition tables from ALL of the HDD's in my system except for the main drive! Stupid POS!! This is why I hate Windows so much! If stupid Agent and Nero had Linux versions, I'd NEVER touch Windows again!
Anyway, I was able to undelete the partition table on my non-raid hard drive with TestDisk (great little program!!), but it won't recoginize the partitions on the RAID drives - I'm guessing that the Windows "dynamic disks" RAID mode writes the table across both drives, and since it's software not hardware raid, TestDisk can't "see" the full parition table.
So...anyone know of a program to recover that partition?
I'd really like my 60+GBs of data back!
Only one of the two raid drives was hosed; Partition Magic sees the one correctly as a dynamic disk, but shows the other drive as being unallocated, and says there are no partitions to undelete.
