Is there any way to recover my RAID volume that I created from my motherboard's built-in RAID controller?


I was using MSI X99S Gaming 7 which burned a few weeks back. Now I need a couple of important files that were in there and forgot to keep a backup of them.

I found this on the internet: http://www.freeraidrecovery.com/ but am kinda skeptical to use.


Any suggestion on how I can recover my RAID 5 volume?

I believe it comes off the Intel chipset, so its Intel RST....a word we despise around here 😄

So your new motherboard doesnt have Intel RST (Intel RAID)? Or are you trying to migrate to a different system?


Intel has a recovery procedure if you have a failed drive: https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/motherboards/server/RAID_vol_recover_proc.pdf

But it seems your RAID controller is the issue so the virtual drive is intact, you could just mount it on another compatible Intel based motherboard and import it.
