Hello, here are my specs

Ryzen 9 5900x
EVGA 3080
Asus x570 tuf pro (wifi)
2, 500gb NVME drives (raid 0)
2, 500GB sata ssd drives (raid 0)
2, 2 TB HDD's (raid 1)

I recently did a fresh reinstall of windows 11, I backed all my important data up to the raid 1 array for my 2 tb hdd. I also took the precaution of unplugging it as not to mess it up, I reinstalled windows and plugged it back in but the raid 1 shows offline in the bios (I did a hardware raid). I'm not sure what to do as Windows does not see the HDD's whatsoever, My other 2 raids are fine and showing and all set up, but not the raid 1 array. I attempted to connect one of them to my laptop using a sata to USB adapter and it does show up in disk management, but it shows it has the 2 TB partition and is online but it will not show up in the file manager and there is no option to get it to show up, I don't want to re initilize I'm really hoping theres a way I can recover this as I had very important data on it.

You're free to believe anything you want, of course. You're already out $90 at least because of this nonsense. Guess some new users require harder lessons than others.
Hey, I just wanted to get the last laugh and let you know I fixed it without paying a single dime ;) Was able to re-sync it with AMD software, I guess you aren't that experienced in software to understand that.

Thanks for the help!

Good that you got it "fixed".
But lets leave off the offhand insults...OK?

And may we presume that you will now institute a good backup routine?

Hey man, he said I didn't have experience in hardware, and mentioned something about how I skate with a skateboard with the price tag still on it. I understand you moderators need to stick up for eachother, but I simply said what he did with a different wording.
I'm trying to figure out how I want to configure my backup, I don't really need my raid 0 drives backed up.

Then he won't be able to create a thread asking for help and then insult the very people helping him.

We just have to accept the fact we have a new storage guru on this forum.

Are you referring to the people who didn't know how to help me correctly?
