Bios setting was changed made Intel bios clear the raid settings. Made new raid with what I think to be the same 128 cluster size. Booted in to windows where intel RST started initiation stopped this at 1-2%. Have not be able to recover anything but very small files like notpad from the drive.
What caused the data loss: I was in the process of installing a new SSD and cloning it over to the new drive. The migration software was not compatible with the intel chip set being set to raid. I changed it to either ahci or ide I don't remember. I completed the migration. How ever after setting the Sata ports back to RAID I found that the intel bois said that all 4 Seagate drives were now non-member.
I did some searching and I found this guide online:
HOWEVER! This guide did not mention that this only works if the OS in on the RAID system and if it is not like in my case my OS in on the SSD after you reboot into windows the intel RST will start blanking the drives. I stopped this before it got too far. Likely it got to 1% or as high as 2 of the initiation.
So this is where I am. I have tried the test disk software, I am not sure if I was using it correctly I tried a few times. It didnt work.
I tried using data recovery software from ZAR (paid). I was not 100% sure of my cluster size so I setup the raid in 32, 64, and 128 and ran the data recovery (an 8 hour scan each). The interesting thing is different folders are rovered with each different cluster size. As in when I run the recovery after setting it to 64 vs 128 different filenames and folders will be recovered.
