I suspect that the data is there, what failed is the RAID controller. Six months out of warranty! Anyway, my old computer doesn't run properly with this drive attached now, so I won't try to salvage it.

That's exactly why I got rid of my RAID 1 system.  If the RAID controller goes down, you are screwed.  And another PC may not be able to read those drives.

I now automatically synchronize each night a second drive in the PC from what's changed through the day.  I also backup to an external USB drive.
