Storage Spaces

Post by Kaos » Tue Oct 21, 2014 8:18 am

How do I initiate a storage spaces recovery?

All drives are present, no failed drives, the raid controller failed. I don't see the ability to restore from the space level, only from individial drives.

Worth noting, this was created on Server 2012 R2.

Thanks,

Corsari

Which type of RAID was it originally?
Is it a server?
Is it a PC?
Is it an HW RAID with RAID controller, or is it a SW RAID?
Is it an workstation Asus-like mainboard with common intel Sata controller with raid?

Thank you for clarifying

RAID 0, for each drive.
So each drive was in its own RAID array.
Server 2012 R2.
HW RAID, LSI 8888ELP

Can you post a screenshot of R-Studio's Drive pane?

As I understand, the windows storage spaces were created on RAID(s). If that is correct, you have to created virtual RAID(s) from its (their) parents. As soon as the RAID0(s) is/are correctly created, R-Studio will be able to discover and re-construct windows storage spaces.
