XP pro raid problem

By speedswim2001 ·
I had a problem with my OS and was forced to reformat it. My system is set up with 2 logical drives, 1 40gig for the OS and 2 80gig SATA drives in RAID 0. the orginal raid array as set up and used in Windows XP Pro using software. When I had to reformat I had to use a copy of XP home and now my array is gone, the drives under disk management state that they are stil dynamic, but foreign, and they are not accessable.

My question is, is there anyway of getting this now XP home machine to see that array withough losing the data on it? I'm praying there is

Thanks in advanced!

Foreign Disk

From within disk management right click on the disk(s) that is/are listed as foreign and select import foreign disks.

The drives should then become accessiable without loss of data.

I just wanted to thank you for your response. A friend of mine had a similar issue to the original problem for approximately five months now. You're response solved the problem.

Thank you very much.
