There is really not a worse way to store data. Pretty sure whomever was working on your computer had also never seen this and so it was logical to install Windows on the RAID 0 array since RAID 0 is for speed. If you have a hard drive go bad or something like this happens then you see why RAID 0 is a bad idea for storage. You lose your data and no you can't get it back. The logical way to use RAID 0 is for installing Windows and programs on and then you would have another drive for storage of things you can not afford to lose. You should be using RAID 1 if you wanted to use RAID for storage. m 0 l Pyree a b $ Windows 7 a b G Storage February 21, 2012 5:58:11 AM This next topics has been merged by Pyree Recover data from hardware raid0 Stuffed Raid 0 Formatted Raid 0 m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
