Re-installed Win 7 Pro to SSD...RAID Volume "Access is denied."

Wasn't sure where to ask this but I have a hunch this may be the right forum to start.

Recently my Crucial M4 SSD died and I was sent a warranty replacement.

I successfully installed Win 7 to the replacement SSD but now I can't access my "Main" RAID" volume where I stored all my apps and data.

I have 2 1.5 Tbyte Caviar Blacks in RAID 0.

Under disk management it shows "Disk 1" as basic disk online and the two partitions, "Main E:" and "Secure F:," are both indicated as healthy.

I can access "Secure F:" but when I try to get into "Main E:" I get "E:\ is not accessible, access is denied."

It looks like I have all the permissions set properly to access the partition but no dice. I have all my data there. I also have a backup image on the "Secure F:" partition but when I ran Win 7 Setup it wouldn't let me point to/ find that image for some reason.

At the moment I'm copying the image over to a USB 2.0 Lacie and maybe I'll be able to launch a restore from there.

I'd like to get a little more technical input from here before I begin because I would like to access the "Main E:" partition and back it up just in case I end up having to blow away the box and start from scratch...

Thank you for any help, input, ideas, etc..

Yup, but it doesn't seem that BIOS is seeing the disks...
