EPOX 8K5a3+ RAID help.

Hi there, posting this on behalf of my mate.

He's had his two maxtor 80gb HDD RAIDED in a RAID 0 configuration, its been like this for a year or so and he has ALL his Uni dissertation and everything on it and he tried to switch on this morning to back it all up and it spun up and wouldnt work.

He unlplugged all the drives and went thru them one by one and it POSTS with one drive (either connected) but with two it whirs the fans and switches off.

Now I'm hoping his crappy q-tec PSU has buggered up but if it hasnt is there anyway to get all his data back, say by booting off a spare IDE drive and recovering the RAIDed drives in XP pro ?

Theoretically, yes. But if his PSU is the problem, adding another drive to the mix won't help. Or am I misunderstanding what you are going to do?

I'm going to try my antec PSU in there see if its a PSU problem first, if its not I just wondered If I could salvage the data.

As long as it uses the same type of RAID controller, then you should be able to do what you propose. Note that things get problematic as you make the hardware and BIOS more and more different
