    Question Mobo dead, how to access striped volume externally from laptop?

    I have a dead PC with 2 data drives that are windows striped (not hardware raid-0). If I buy a usb raid enclosure, do you think windows will recognize them as a dynamic disc? If not, is there a way to access it externally without a desktop? Thanks.

    First of all, I know they can recover many. But I had an incident where I executed the chkdsk /f /r /x command after having the 'can't recognize device descriptor' error. So I restarted my PC as that is the way to execute this particular command, but didn't realize I had my monitor and TV...
