I was trying to plug in a cable into the back of the computer and accidentally pressed clear CMOS button.

I am panicking because i had city permitting projects on my desktop i was working on for the past one week because the deadline is tonight.

I had windows set up on two Raid 0 ssds,
I kept the project files on a desktop of ot.

Motherboard is X79A-GD45 Plus

Is there anyway to fix this without recreating Raid, reinstalling windows, reinstalling software, explaining to client and contractor that i need to redo a week long worth of work until i can submit it to them?

Can you get into BIOS? Can you change SATA mode to RAID?

I'm definitely worried for you! RAID 0 is one of the most dangerous ways to organize important files!
Yes, I can get into bios.
I am afraid if i set up new raid 0 it will erase the old Raid.

I was never supposed to use raid 1 for file storage. I have a separate drive for file storage. Stupid of me, so stupid of me.

I am trying to figure out how to enable raid 0 in one of these menus. I remember i had to change something for that feature to appear

0, not 1. Right?

For anyone reading this in the future, several levels of fail:
  1. RAID 0
  2. On SSD
  3. As the OS volume
  4. With no backup
Yes, raid 0. I have a separate raid 1 hhd setup where a drive recently failed. I copied the project to desktop, because i was afraid the other drive could fail before i could fix the drive in raid 1.
Would you maybe try to help instead of rubbing it in to me.

Yes, my link above for ReclaiMe...;)

In your image above, what options are under ACPI settings?

But, wait for some more replies.
Maybe someone else has specific info on this board.
Thank you. I would imagine i would have to setup windows on a separate drive. Install that software. Setup my raid 0 separately and use the software to recover it? Is the software paid?

I did the RST thing, rebooted, and… back on track.
Thank you all for holding my hand though it. Can’t be happier. 😮‍💨

Thank goodness!

Now please, shoot this RAID into the sun! RAID is really only suitable in very specific situations -- large sequential files that are constantly moved, always-on storefront servers, etc -- and always need proper backups. In most consumer scenarios and even most power users, it's a lot more trouble than it's worth; most will only get a benchmark boost. Your sanity will thank me!
