I was messing around with my pc this afternoon, which has two hardware raids (IDE and SATA), not thinking my D drive (main data storage drive was even on the raid i decided to redefine my IDE raid, combining the two hard disks on there which were set to two seperate disks (a 200gig & and 80gig) into one spanned disk. Then i noticed that my D was missing. I then realised that my D drive was the other seperate disk on that hardware raid controller. I quickly rebooted my machine and reset the raid partition to what it was before but it now seemed that i had lost all my data. When i re-redefined my raid, windwos picked up the two seperate drives, with the correct drive names and latters but said that now the D drive needed to be format to be used. i think all the data is still on the disk but i just dont know how to get it back, is it something to do with the master boot record? Is this data lost? what can i do? Is there any software you can advise me to use? and help would be more than appreciated, otherwise i have lost some serious work.
Cheers anyone who can help!
