Default Recovery From Windows Spanned Volumes

I have 3 drives that were configured as spanned volume sets under windows, I need to recover data from the drives , but I need to specify some sectors from start and some sectors from the end as offset, they do not belong to the spanned volume set, that is how to specify a region from a disk to be member of the set, NOT the whole disk.

Default Re: Recovery From Windows Spanned Volumes

If you know the correct values, then use the "Data Recovery" mode, then in a disk list under "More Functions" use "Define RAID" option, and in there you can set a start offset (relative to the physical disk, sector 0), and the size for each member.

If you do not know these, there is practically nothing we can do, either than try to re-create the span exactly as it was in Disk Management, but do not format it.
Best regards,
