Who is the old geezer in your avatar? It's been driving me a bit nuts.

Geezer? I've been called worse, but are you calling old? I prefer seasoned.

Chuckle. Too bad you can't run a face recognition app against that small pic. You never know.

I will tell you this much - start at the LOC. And do not look in IT.

since you have that RAID talk... what happens in RAID 0 when the RAID controller fails and you need a new one (either RAID card, new Mobo or whatever).
will the new controller be able to splice the RAID 0 data together correctly? And only if it is the very same controller? What about I have RAID 0 from a southbridge... Mobo fails, I buy a new one.. can the new one use may RAID 0 data?

The question is moot. RAID0 is for performance, not security. All data on RAID0 should be treated as already lost unless imaged or otherwise archived.

Having said that, the answer - it depends. Software RAID (to include the misnomered firmware RAID) is one thing, hardware RAID is another. The RAID configuration data, however, is stored within the volume(s) and recovery is possible and straightforward with the correct tools.
