I have a dedicated server with two identical hard drives, which ran in a raid array, mirrored until yesterday, when the datacenter had a power failure and corrupted one of the discs. I figured if I 'break' the mirror (not 'remove'), I would be able to get TWO identical copies of the data, one on the bad drive and one on the good drive. But alas, after performing the 'break mirror' command, the resulting partition on the 'good' drive appears to be blank and asks me to format it. Bummer!
Now, the support guy tells me I should backup the bad partition onto the free one, but before doing so, I am asking, is there any chance of recovering the data on the seemingly blank partition now? I did not get any prompts from Windows asking me if I was 'sure' that the data would be lost, only the warning that the disks will not be 'redundant' anymore.
I would appreciate any insight.
