Problems with a raid setup are often very hard to fix, especially if the user is inexperienced when it comes to it. This can be the case for instance if the raid was set up by a company for the user.
There are quite a few things that can go wrong when operating raids, which include hard disk failures or having to replace the raid controller because of a dead motherboard or new computer system. Raid To Raid is a very versatile software program that can be used for data recovery on raid systems and more.
Its main purpose is to get the raid operational again after switching to another raid controller, but that is not the only functionality that it provides you with.
The raid software can mount a raid even if the motherboard chipset or raid controller has changed. It is even possible to accommodate existing raids on computer systems that do not offer a hardware based raid controller.
The application supports raid arrays and dynamic discs created with Intel, NVIDIA, VIA and other chipsets on Windows.
The raid data recovery software supports raid arrays of the following types: Raid 0 (JBod, Stripe), Raid 1 (Mirror), Raid 5 (data recovery mode if single disk is missing or corrupt), Raid 10 (Raid 0+1) plus software based raids and Windows dynamic discs (simple, span, strip, mirror and raid 5).
The file systems that it supports are FAT, NTFS, Ext2, classic and GPT partition styles introduced with Windows Server 2008.
While there is no guarantee that it will help in specific cases, it is a free program that you can try to see if it resolves issues you are facing.
Raid To Raid is a free download that should work with most versions of the Windows operating system including Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
Please note that Raid To Raid has not been updated for quite some time. The last supported operating system is Windows Vista, which means that it may not work properly anymore on newer versions of the Windows operating system.
It is recommended to back up data before you run the application on your system, especially if you run it on a system that is not officially supported by it.
The supported file systems have changed as well. According to the website, only NTFS, NTFS 4 and NTFS 5 file systems are supported by Raid 2 Raid.Advertisement
