Hello, I am running Windows XP Raid 1 mirror. Several months ago I Replaced both hdds with new ones. Recently I made images (one at a time) onto those drives, but upon putting them back in I get the msg during boot that both hdds are degraded. It then boots into Windows. I don't know what to do

First, backup the entire computer to a suitable external drive.

Try running 'HD Tune' on these drives and check the health of the drives.

If the results turn out that the drives are bad, then you need to replace them, and re-build the RAID 1 (mirroring).

pretty sure the drives are good but will try. Thanks for the help.
