Question about "Import Foreign Disks"
Hello, I had two RAID-1 (mirrored) arrays on my Win 7 PC, when suddenly they both disappear from the active disks list. Perhaps it's because I let a foreign company edit my registry remotely to resolve a problem with their s/w. The four drives now show up as "Foreign, Dynamic" disks.
I see the "Import Foreign Disks" feature but I have a few questions.
When I try this feature (but don't execute), it says I have "Four disks in group" - I was hoping it would say I have two disks each in two groups. Should I be concerned?
Also, I can access my older of the two RAID arrays as separate disks from Linux, but the newer (GPT 3GB disks) are not accessable from Ubuntu 12.10 - should I be concerned? Is it possible the tables on these disks really are damaged and this is why Windows lost them in the first place?]
Also, I deliberately used two different brands of 3TB drives in my new array (in case one brand "bricked"); was this a bad idea?
The whole point of the RAID-1 array was to make my data safer - now I can't access it at all - that wasn't what I intended ;(
