1 Answer

Hi. my computer crashed a long time ago and I had to order some recovery disks but before I run them I want to backup the files on the drive but it has something called RAID (both 320GB hard drives only show as one 640GB before it crashed) I want to plug them into my other PC but then it shows (the hard drive has not been formatted Do you want to format now'' and of corse I do not want to do that. I looked around and found this a is a common problem with RAID hard drives so what do I do. what order do i connect the hard drive to the other pc one of the drives had a red dot sticker on it I take it that important? The drive are from a packard bell x8860 link to packard bell page http://support.packardbell.com/uk/item/?m=home&sn=100388100351 Thanks to all who help :)

    You have to connect them, and the motherboard have to support RAID technology, so you can make parity. Once connected to the right motherboard, you have to define in BIOS your RAID disks. Then your SO will identify as only one Hard drive, and you can access your data. Regards

Well the drives are set to raid 0, if you're seeing 640GB. This implies that data will be stored on the first one till it's full and then move on to the next. If you have less than 320GB of data and you've lost drive 'A', then the chances of retrieving the data are slim. Your only options are then to try some recovery software or head off to a recovery company. Try running a diagnostic software on the drives individually to determine which drive is faulty.

There is companies that make data recovery, you could try them, there is also some for private use, but they are not that good. But those companies will pay a lot, if you have a good home insurance you could try them to pay recovery.

Depends how much you appreciate the information on hard disk.

How to extact the data off the Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB HD


if its your motherboard that crashed then ther is no problem with your hard disk. connect your hard disk to any other computer and you can access all the files in it.

Hard drive recovery, hard drive is damaged


My brother's MacBook Pro had a similar issue a few years ago. In his case the issue started when he attempted to update the OS to the then most recent version. The update failed with an error saying that the Hard Disk needed to be repaired and instructing him to restart in Recovery Mode and repair the disk. When he did this the "Repair Disk" option was grayed out as you said. From my searches then it seems that the drive entered a "write-locked" state that prevented it from mounting. I was able to recover his files and restore the computer to working order. You will need another computer that has enough free space to hold the files you want to save, and the appropriate cable to connect the misbehaving computer to the working computer.
This procedure requires booting in Recovery Mode and erasing the non-working computer's hard drive, reformatting it, and restoring the system.
1. Turn on the working computer.
2. Make sure the non-working computer is turned off, connect the two computers using the appropriate cable (FireWire or Thunderbolt)
3. Turn on the non-working computer holding down the "T" key to enter Target Disk Mode. (This worked in the case of my brother's computer, but I can't guarantee that this will work in your case, but if you could get it into Verbose mode I would think you should be able to get into Target Disk Mode.)
4. The non-working computer's hard drive icon should appear on the working computer's desktop. You may get a message that you cannot alter the contents of the external drive (non-working computer), but you will be able to transfer files from the non-working machine to the working one.
NOTE: You could connect a dedicated external drive to the working computer and transfer files from the non-working computer to the external drive using the working computer as an intermediary of sorts.
5. Transfer the files you wish to save. We will be erasing the non-working computer's drive and restoring the system so be certain you have what you need transferred before you get to that step.
6. Once you have saved all of the files you need to save, you can eject the non-working computer's hard drive, and turn off the non-working computer.
7. If possible connect the computer to the internet, if not possible you can use wi-fi, but it may take longer.
8. Connect the non-working computer to the drive with your most recent backup.
8. Turn on the non-working computer holding down the "Command+R" keys.
9. Once the computer is in Recovery Mode choose the option to Restore From Backup
10. You will then be asked to choose which backup to use, and then click "Restore". Once this process is done you should be able to boot the system. You can then transfer the files you saved to the other computer or external hard drive back to the restored computer.
