Old server using a S1200BTS Intel mobo died and has been sitting in a closet for several years. I replaced the motherboard and found that it was originally configured using an onboard hardware raid controller.
Harddrives are still in their original configuration however the raid controller no longer detects any of the drives as being raid drives.
Is there a way for me to rebuild the array without destroying the drives? There are 3 identical hard drives inside of the chassis but I have no idea what raid level it was using.
I made a clone of of one of the drives and without initializing the drive was able to see that every file on the drive has 3 files with the same name but with each ending in 1, 2, or 3 as if each file had 3 parts. None of the files can be opened.
I don't know where to go from here. I'm being told theres close to 800,000 images that need to be recovered and at the moment they're paperweights.
