1, bootup your old server with all the RAID drive and copy the data over to your new computer.
2, attach all the raid drive to your new computer and rebuild the raid with R-studio, then copy off the data to your new computer.
Or, Send all the drives out to data recovery company, they can recover the data for you.

I have a bit of a problem understanding the question. One drive cannot be in a RAID. A drive isn't RAID, it's either part of a RAID array with other drives or not.

Is there exactly one drive, or several built into a RAID array? If the latter, what level of RAID and how many? If the former, why do you say that it is RAID?

If the old machine is still running, option 1 above is indeed the simplest.
