    Hi all,
    I need some help with a Highpoint RocketRaid 1640 Raid controller with 4 500GB seagate SATA drives. This server was running in a remote location and it was a couple months before I found out that one of the drives had failed. I attempted a recovery by adding a new drive and rebuiding the array. After 3 days the rebuild failed. So I decided to move the array into a newer machine with faster processor and more RAM. I installed the drivers and when asked about deleting the configuration, I had a senior moment and deleted it. Now I have the drives and controller in a new box and the controller recognizes the drives but not the array. Highpoint has been absolutely worthless asking me if I installed drivers etc. after I have repeatedly expained the problem and asked for a utility to scan the drives and rebuild the configuration file so that the card will recognize the array and I can recover my data.
    Can anyone out there provide me with info on how to rebuild my config file without reinitializing the drives and loosing my data?
    Thanks
