Was able to plug the drive in to my main PC today after opening it up, all the files read perfectly and I copied everything I needed! 😁
After that I put it back in to the old PC and tried seeing if windows recovery would even detect the OS, which it didn’t, probably since I had the bios set to RAID and not IDE mode.
Should I just wipe the drive and reinstall windows now, or is there a way to run an sfc scannow if the drive isn’t being booted from?
Either way it doesn’t really matter, I got all my files and as long as I don’t physically damage the drive I don’t really care what happens to it.

Plugged the disk in to a normal SATA port and not the one with the RAID controller, Windows recovery detected it and everything works now 👍
I’d like to thank all of you who helped me along the way!

Assuming all your data is recovered, I would seriously consider a fresh, non-RAID OS install.
Then, institute a real backup routine.
