Unable to access my G-Raid external drive.
on Aug 2, 2016 at 4:49:02 pm

I went to connect my 2TB G-Raid on my new computer. Under computer management the external drive doesn't appear. I tried a few things like swapping different esata cable and connecting to a different port but that didn't work. I bought a new esata card and installed it on a PCI slot but the drive still doesn't t appear. I switched over to a USB connection and now in computer management I can see the device as dynamic and invalid. I have the option by right clicking on the drive to convert back to basic but that will probably erase all the data. I switched over to Partition Assistant by Aomei to view the same drive it can see it but still can't repair it. It displays the same "dynamic" or "simple" info. I have the option of doing the same thing convert to basic but it doesn't say that I will lost all my data although I probably will. The data on the drive is extremely important so any suggestion on how to proceed would be appreciated.

Have you been able to figure out what the issue is yet?

Cheers.

Yes I think it was a corrupted MBR . The G-RAID was removed from my old computer to a new computer. Anyway I used two programs to fix the problem Testdisk which is a free utility was able to rebuild the MBR. After that I used AOMEI Partition Assistant Pro to covert from Dynamic to Basic and Presto it worked. Hope this walk-through might help anyone with a similar problem. BTW Partition Assistant is not free however Testdisk will allow you to convert from Dynamic to Basic but it's a DOS based program but not difficult to use.
