Wondering if anybody can help me, recently my second raids 0 disks have gone to RAW file (i know I should have backed the up!), so i cannot open them.

Any ideas on how to get them to NTFS without formatting them?

Cheers

You could try booting with a recovery disk (linux or bart/winPE etc) and seeing if you can recover anything from the raid array but this might depends on drivers if the RAID is on the onboard intel ICH on the mobo.

Chances are high you are completely boned, should have done regular backup's mate.

I tried many many ways to sort this out in the past, in the end it was some linux based live CD that scanned for and recreated the GPT that got stuff back. Stuff all tools do GPT and will fix it yet.

I cant remember the name of the tool I used, but I found it by searching for partition repair. There are heaps of tools that will take what is on the drive and recover it to another drive, but when you have many TB of stuff that is seldom an option.

Pretty much the best thing ever for recovering data from a RAID gone bad
