Remounting existing RAID 0 Drive in Gen8


Recommended Posts

Hi Folks

Sorry if my questions reflects that I am a novice:


Is it possible to mount an existing drive containing data (originally configured as RAID0) after setting up and installing WS2012R2 on another RAID0 drive?

In other words how do I add an existing drive containing data to the Microserver  without reformatting the drive so that I can use the data on it?



Your help will be very much appreciated.

Setting up a drive as a single drive RAID0 does not format the drive. Your data should stay in place, but be sure to have a good backup. Also if this drive was original setup on a HP RAID controller as a single drive RAID0, the system may just pick it up after reboot. Regardless have a backup.
