Re: HELP! Both Raid Drives "not readable"
In reply to Doug R, Apr 4, 2013

Thanks, Doug.  I recovered all the data from the drive using Data Rescue 3.  Drivewarrior failed big time.

I back all files to 2nd drive and the most important to a third drive.  I also have a 4th drive that I've copied the portfolio stuff to.

Anyway, this is a lesson learned about RAID.

I'm going back to my trusty old system of backing up to multiple hard drives.

I'm sure the op thought he was backed-up with raid1, I made the same suggestion on Fredmiranda to him 2 days ago and he never responded. Hope going forward he realizes that raid is not a backup and  in the future uses a sensible backup strategy and dose not count on raid.  RAID OF ANY KIND IS NOT A BACK UP!
