Breaking a RAID 0 safely

By settle.g ·
I have a friend with an Asus mobo, 2 1T drives configured with BIOS RAID 0. The system reports a problem with the target drive. Is there a way to break the RAID without losing data? The mobo manual states that data will be lost if the set is broken.

Back it up first!

by markp24 In reply to Breaking a RAID 0 safely

Hi,

before doing anything, back it up (or image it) (pesonally i think it worth spending the $90 on an external 2 gb drive to back that up, then i would break the Raid 0 and rebuilts the system after (if you choose to image it, you can most likly restore the image to one of the 1 tb (if the amoubnt of data on the raid 0 is less than 1 tb)
