    Cant read from my raid 0 dynamic disk, after a windows 8

    I had to reinstall windows. I had a raid 0 with 2 drives, when I started widows the drive couldn't be accessed. so the only option was to convert to dynamic disk. I did that but still cant read or change drive letters. I am pretty sure my data is still on it. but how can I read this disk?

    right now I am scanning it with easeUS data recovery and it looks like its finding files. any other way to read the drive?

    raid was made with the bios
