My startech S354UFER RAID 5 Enclosure has failed in some way.
None of the drives are showing as having failed on the enclosure, and being as they are 4 drives less than 3 months old, I would hope not.
Suddenly the enclosure drive (D:\) shows up in Windows as needing formatting.
Maybe the ESata card failed, so I connected it via USB and it still shows as D:\ needing formatting now.
I believe the data must still be there, but I don't know how to recover it.
I've tried a couple of pieces of software, but you cant access a RAID5 array as it expects you to specify multiple drives, but the enclosure makes all the drives just show up as one drive.
So I need either a bit of software which will allow me to look at the data in this way, or I guess I would have to take all the drives out, put it into a computer and use the software to build the array maybe ?
Can anyone point me in the right direction.
Thanks for reading.
