Forensics: Rebuilding a Windows RAID with EnCase

Rebuilding a Windows Striped RAID in EnCase is incredibly simple. This is because the information about the RAID is kept within the hard drives, as its a software RAID. This is not the case for a hardware RAID, as the information about the drive configuration .

Note – A video guide on how to rebuild a hardware RAID will be on  the Where is Your Data? YouTube Channel  later this month.
