    No.

    Well, almost never.

    Every system has a different way of setting up a RAID, and even if You had 2 identical motherboards to use, the RAID would need to be re-initialized on the new system.

    It might be possible with an expensive hardware RAID card, or with an external enclosure that turns disks into a RAID and has a single connection like SATA or USB back to the PC.

    Thanks for Helping, i was really puzzled.
  3. This is why I never use RAID. Data recovery is a critical part of any file system, IMHO. RAID fails miserably at data recovery.
