    Hi there

    What RAID -- 0 /1/10/5 etc

    no picture either

    Are the HDD's on an external box ---if so connected to machine via USB or e-sata.

    You need to provide more info to get help --you just don't call up a garage and say "My car is broken".

    Note also for future reference -- ALWAYS TAKE BACKUPS - this is mentioned Ad Nauseam on these forums and still people don't do it.

    Imagine if your Bank didn't have backups and you wanted to get money out -- I leave the rest to your imagination. !!!!!

    Also, what type of RAID controller are you using? Is it a Hardware RAID or Software?
    If a Hardware RAID controller, you will get a message at bootup to enter the RAID control panel, by pressing a key combo like CTRL+S. In this control panel, you can view the RAID array, it will tell you if one of the volumes has failed. Then depending on what type of RAID you have, (ie) RAID 1 or 5 you can replace the failed volume with a new drive and in this control panel choose to Rebuild the Array and you will not loose any data. You should still have backups though. RAID 10 would require at least 3 drives of which you don't have. If you have RAID 0 Striped set, there is no redundancy and all data will be lost if one drive fails.
