Windows 7: Recover data from Dynamic Disk

Recover data from Dynamic Disk

I have a machine with a dead motherboard. I would like to copy my data to a new machine. My old machine two hard drives configured in a software RAID (dynamic disk). Do I just plug one of them into my new machine, or do I have to do something first since it was part of a software RAID?

If it's a "regular" dynamic disk (as in just a dynamic disk, you didn't RAID it in anyway in previous Windows installation) then you should be able to import the volume directly. I've done this many times back in XP.

But if it's a part of a RAID volume (other than RAID-1)... you are out of luck...

If it's a mirror set, then you are good... just import it, it'll pop right up...
