So my primary Hard drive finally stopped working.

I had 1 wester digital 74gb raptor as my main boot drive and 2 wd caviar 500gb(identical) in RAID 0 as my storage

I bought an SSD as the replacement for the boot drive and I would like to recover the data from the 2 Caviar's.

So I install windows 7 on the SSD and it workes fine. I want to recreate the 2 caviar's as a raid 0 with the data still on there.
Im using tha same mobo and everything, I just replaced the broken hard drive.

I want to know is there a way to recover that data on the 2 Caviar's in Raid 0 because when I go to recreate the raid it says the data might be lost, do you want to continue?

Put the Raptor back, boot the machine as it was, backup the Array to a removable drive; then you can upgrade with a nice safe back-up copy of your data.

I guess im a noob about these kind of things but Im unable to load windows to backup the array due to the failed raptor. Is there another way to save the files on the raid 0 drives?

Ok, fixed it. I put my new hard drive in and installed windows.

Right clicked my computer,Manage,disk management,clicked on my 2 hard drives and clicked import and the raid showed back up. Happy again. Thanks to my bro
