Broken Mirror with Win98se

By vcs1 ·
I had a working system with to 40 Gigabyte Maxtor Hard Drives (Identical Models), mirrored on an Abit motherboard with Raid Controllers. Each was a master. The 1st was on the Raid Primary, and the other on the Raid Secondary. For some reason, no warning I noticed the Raid Bios reported at boot up that the Mirror was broken. I would like to get the Mirror back. I tried in the bios to use the Duplicate to get it going. It still gives me a broken mirror message. Can anyone help? PS I don't want toloose my data.

Q. How do I repair a broken mirror set?
A. You need an area of unpartitioned
space that is at least the size of the
primary partition torepair a broken mirror
set. To perform the repair, complete the
following steps:

1. From the Start menu, select Programs,
Administrative Tools, then Disk
Administrator.
2. Click the working part of the mirror,
hold down the Ctrl key, and select the
area of unpartitioned space.
3. Select Establish Mirror from the Fault
Tolerance menu.

I haven't tried this myself but the answers
are usually correct. this is an NT solution
but should be able to adapt it to 98.

Goodluck.
