I have a 5 bay eSATA enclosure, with two 1 Tb Hitachi drives inside mirroring one another. I've been using this as my storage for all media related stuff (mp3s mostly), with the drives in a RAID 1 configuration.
I recently went out of town for the weekend, and when I returned, found that my PC had shut down on its own. When I rebooted the desktop, along with the external drive, my Vista 64 OS wouldn't recognize the external RAID volume as a drive. In disk management, it notices the drive, but it's greyed out with the red hospital cross on the left, with "Unknown" and "Not Initialized" written underneath.
My RAID software, Sil 4726 Manager, sees the volume just fine.
So my question is, what is my best course of action from here on out? I'd prefer to not lose the data mirrored on those disks if at all possible, as only some of it is backed up on a separate external.
Thanks for any help,
