    RAID 0 no longer works, one of the disks is unallocated

    I have 2 drives configured as RAID 0, on an older motherboard with nVidia chipset. Worked fine up until few days ago, now windows doesn't see it.
    The RAID utility on boot says its fine.
    Tried to boot with Ubuntu, no luck - it couldn't read it.
    If I disable RAID in BIOS setup, I get a single disk drive visible (which I need to format to make usable, of course). Disk Manager shows that one of the drives is unallocated.

    Any ideas if its fixable without losing data, or the RAID is shot?

    You really really need to maintain backups when RAID 0 is involved. While always important this becomes particularly so with RAID 0. Recovery methods can never be relied on.
