One of RAID 0 drives got SMART error any last resorts to retrieve data

Had three Seagate 7200.12 drives in RAID 0.

During boot, the RAID configuration/status screen states "Error Occurred" for one drive.
Earlier, I installed the Intel Matrix Storage Console, it also stated "error."
Windows 7 doesn't boot anymore, and the Windows 7 boot repair just hangs.

The Seagate diagnostic software said one drive has a SMART error, and it's covered under warranty.

Before I send this back, are there any last attempts that I can try to retrieve the data from this RAID 0?

    Unless you have the money to send the drives in to be professional recovered, the answer is no.

    Hopefully you had a backup of your data. Although going by your post I don't think you did.

    Only thing I can think of trying is a live cd version of unbuntu to see if it can see array and read it. I have had luck on unbootable singel drives doing this.
    Worked enough to retrieve some info.
