Win10 installed on SSD
2 HDD in raid though sadly I forget exactly what
After moving the PC I got a message “can’t boot “ , though I was able to copy most of the SSD before it died fully (just had to skip some bits )
I reinstalled windows on a new SSD , copied what I could of the old SSD to a hard drive (copy , paste) and shortly after the old SSD reported corruption and couldn’t be read
WHAT ID LIKE :
Is to recover the 2 drives raid without losing the data
There are 2 pairs of 4tb drives I can see in disk mngmnt,
1 pair shows 3 partitions on each but neither is assigned a drive letter ,(2gb,2gb,3700gb)
the other pair says “dynamic foreign” with no partitions
Can I rebuild it with the new win install ?
Should I try to rebuild athe original win drive from the copy I made and access the raid that way ?
Thanks :)

Yep.
I was going to suggest that particular thing next for 4 & 6.


Take this as a heads up....the importance of a backup cannot be overstated.
